Rhythm & Blues in Autumn

Friends, I sketched jazz players last Saturday in the Botanical Garden. "Close-up" excited me so much and a great fun. Enjoy them all.Jazz players were happy with my sketches, whcih made me happy, too.
...a bit embarrasing, I missed out the meet up with other Sydney Sketch Club members in the garden. I expected it at 3:30. BUT it was 3:00! (Thank you, Liz for "baby sitting" of this big girl!)

The jazz players had concerts at Vista Pavilion. After separating from Liz, I went back there and sketched this. We, sketch club members often get together in front of the "Palm Grove Centre," the shop in the Botanical Garden. Friends, could you guess what's hanging from the tree behind the shop? Many nuts? No, too huge as nuts! Tourists' bags? No, too high to hang on. What's that?
They are BATs!! ʚ(ˆ◡ˆ)ɞ
But, bats~(*o*)~ ? Yes, bats or another name, "flying foxes."
Bats hanging on trees always give me this image. Shhhh... once, I made this illustration for a picture book... ʚ(ˆ◡ˆ)ɞ
(*NOTE: It's a stuffed toy, not a puppy in the story.)
Bats are stars for tourists. Even though Sydney siders are not happy, becuase they enjoy farmers' fruits and do dropping, but being protected by law. Mmmm....from bats' point of view, we, humans are invadors. Hopefully, we can find a compromised ground to live together peacefully. Lastly, the notice from a friend, sketch club member.Melting Pot of Love-Charity Group Exhibition for Japanese Earthquake victims Created By: Nao Hirata.
Opening Night : Thursday April 21st (6-8pm) Exhibition Dates: Thursday, April 21 at 6:00pm - May 3 at 3:00pm Location: Gaffa Gallery, 281 Clarence St, Sydney 2000

Well, the Sydney Sketch Club makes me very busy and productive.
Brillinat. How many sketches do I make per week?? My updating date is Monday, but in fact, I need upload work more. Otherwise, sketches will be piled up!

Anyway, I hope one day, I will enjoy sketching with You, my blog friends all over the world
ʚ(ˆ◡ˆ)ɞ.
Have a wonderful week and happy painting!!

  1. I sincerely admire, Sadami, your ability for making such quick an wonderful (and sometimes funny) sketches. I love listening jazz in open air but, as far as bats are concerned, fortunately they are not frequent here, at least I've never seen any. Cheers.

  6. Mornin' Sadami, I need to put a radio or CD player in my studio and try painting to my favorite music. Who know what might happen? Your post is wonderful. Love your commentaries and painting. I do hope you have a beautiful day.

  7. These are fantastic! And I, as a tourist in Australia many years ago, loved the fruit bats - or flying foxes as I think they were called. Your work just keeps getting better and better and better - and how is that possible?

  8. Dear Carol
    Thank you for encouragement! We had a patchy rainy day, but after work I swam 1.5km at a beach work in the evening. You, too, enjoy painting and life!
    Cheers, Sadami

  9. Dear Rhonda,
    Oh, yes, "Flying fox," even though thier noses are much lower than foxes. Bats are pretty biiig.
    Hey, you're good at flattering?! I just keep sketching like above, which moves me forward.

    As for me, "Just do it" works rather than looking up books or theories. Deed/brush strokes teach me.

    Check my new year post and resolutions.
    "how to handle a background and do not lose livliness like quickies", "landscape" & "cartoons" are always in my mind and I feel I'm making them all happen.
    Let us move forward together.
    Cheers, Sadami

  23. Lovely to see you painting musicians. There is something very natural about on art being inspired by another. I can almost hear the music when I look at your paintings.

  25. Hola Sadami, otros magníficos bocetos, los músicos son perfectos, pero a esta altura ya no me sorprende lo bien que te salen, en cambio sí me quedé gratamente impresionado por tu dibujo del "palm grove Center" me gusta mucho y además es muy curioso lo que cuentas de los murciélagos, parecen enormes, saludos.

  26. Dear Sadami,

    Such cheerful, bright paintings to look at for it's a cloudy, cold April so far outside my window.

    I love looking at the brushwork details in your pictures and especially like the splatters (correct term?) and splashes you add to enliven the subject. Everything so light and subtle.

    Yours,

    Nanina

  30. Dear Francis,
    Thank you for encouragements. Come & have a look of fruits bats. They are huge. At least, they are as big as cats or puppies. In Australia, you come across very different, huge animals & plants.
    Cheers, Sadami

    Estimado Francisco,
    Gracias por estímulos. Venga y eche un vistazo de los murciélagos frutos. Son enormes. Por lo menos, son tan grandes como gatos o perros. En Australia, se encuentra muy diferentes, los animales grandes y plantas.
    Saludos, Sadami

    Hello Sadami, other great sketches, the musicians are right, but at this point and I'm not surprised how well you go, however if I was impressed by your drawing of "palm grove Center" I love and is very curious what accounts bats seem huge, greetings.

  31. Dear Nanina,
    Thank U! I do not know terms. I just wanted to add my images of music on the players. Playing with brush strokes is fun and very exciting, even though very risky at the same time. But without making messes, I will not learn. I just liten to my heart and just do it.
    Cheers, Sadami
