Perth Cultural Centre Sketching

Out with the Urban Sketchers Perth for a sketch-meet post Covid19 lockdown…so long as we’re appropriately socially distanced we can get out sketching together again….so lovely to see fellow sketchers again. We met outside of the Art Gallery of Western Australia and I sketched an old building on nearby Beaufort Street plus people passing by the Urban Orchard near Perth Train station20200607_13545820200607_133402

Perth Royal Show 2019

7 and a half hours sketching the last day of the Perth Royal Show at the Royal Agricultural Society show grounds in Claremont, had a fantastic time and managed 11 sketches…a personal record! Started with a couple of pencil sketches in the cattle sheds to warm up then changed to fountain pen and watercolours…Soooo much to sketch…it’s not cheap to get into the show (adult ticket is $32 at the gate, $28 pre-purchase at IGA) but so long as you have time to stay and really look around it’s worth it to meet the farmers and crafts people and see all the exhibits.I was chatting with smiths at the Blacksmiths’ Association of Western Australia who have invited the urban sketchers to go and sketch again at the forge works.
