Today I partook in my first Worldwide Sketchcrawl - groups of sketchers from around the globe getting together on the same day to sketch and then share their results online.
The Sydney group met at the Royal Botanic Gardens. About 50 of us spread out around the gardens to draw sculptures, plants, wildlife, other sketchers, buildings and so on. The 2 hours went very quickly. I spent 90 mins on the sketch above (very easy to get absorbed drawing the various types of foliage!) and 30 mins on the glasshouse at the tropical centre as seen below.
I chatted with several other sketchers who's work I had admired online. It was great to see so many different individual styles.
Suzi Poland, who I had the pleasure of meeting on the day, has further photos and her recount of the day over here on her blog "vignettes de la vie".
