The most recent USK Sydney sketchwalk was held last Saturday in Newtown. For those of you unfamiliar with the area it is vibrant. Full of great cafes, restaurants and funky shops and fabulous old architecture with just the right amount of grunginess to make it interesting and accessible to all. A few of the regular USK group are locals which I believe helped in finding the perfect spot for us to draw.
I was already keen to have a shot at drawing this building but as I arrived it began to rain... and well you can read the rest on my sketch! This was the most "jouranlling" I've ever completed on a sketch. It seems the lack of capturing the drawing motivated me to get it down in words.
In escaping the rain we went to The Pie Tin just around the corner where I caught up with a sketching Instagrammer (nice when virtual friends become real ones!) and so was happy to sit, chat, eat and draw until my time was up.
