Sketching Sydney

Compared to my previous trip to Sydney in Nov 2010, I did lesser sketches during my recent trip to Sydney this May. Anyway, please find a compilation of my humble sketches. Which one is your favourite?

I noticed that I have an inclination to sketch structures and landscapes with interesting textures and shapes.

Before I conclude this post, here is a photograph of the tools that I use for my sketching exercises in Sydney this May. My lesson learnt whenever I sketch is simply: Good practice makes perfect. So please make time to practise.

All the photos on this post were taken using a Canon Digital IXUS 1000HS camera

Jammie: Thanks for your compliments and affirmations. I appreciate your support. That has put a smile on my face.

kyh: Thanks for your encouragement.

goldilocks Thanks for sharing your preference. The first took some time to sketch so as to get in the details.

Actually, I think the most challenging one to sketch was the third one because I had to do so on a cruise, and have limited time to observe and to sketch the essence of the various structures.
