Sketching Treasure Hunt

So this is it. All the blood sweat and tears. It’s over for the year. Sketching luckily requires none of that.  More likely ‘observe, sketch and laugh’

An interesting week indeed having our Sketching Treasure Hunt with every class.  10 things on the list to find and sketch.  Allow about 12 mins per sketch and just go for it. Oh and colour too. W’colour pencils are perfect for these fast moving occasions.

Everyone loved this sketching treasure hunt. Ok we had one sketcher who says she doesn’t like lists. All good. Simply sketch what does appeal to you about this beach and foreshore. So she did.  Nothing is set in concrete here. You can always do your own version of what were doing.

Lunch was at the Manly 16ft Skiff Club on the water this week. Get everyone signed in. Find our big table with the view. Glass of wine anybody. Just order over there.  Now let’s grab the menu and choose a few mains and salads and get our orders in before those big tables of 25 do. Otherwise it may be early dinner instead of lunch!

This proved a great way to do it. Nobody wanted masses of food, although I may have over ordered for Saturday’s class – not that there was much left.  However by sharing we had delicious choices and everyone was happy.  Sketching continued as it does, with last minute completing of all vignettes.

Such a lovely way to finish term. We all had some laughs seeing what others did for some things on the list.  Something with red legs. Something to go on your head. Something that takes you to the city etc etc.  ‘Oh that’s a great idea’ Or ‘wow I didn’t think of that’ and so on.

See everyone’s great work below. 4 different lists but dozens of interpretations.

See you in 2015 and happy sketching.
