I love sketching boats. Here we go! I made it in a short time. A member commented, "I cannot believe how you did this in about 15 minutes." In fact, I came very late for the meeting. I had only two hours. Busy Sadami enjoyed lunch, exploring a wharf, chats with members, sketching and playing with a child in a park! I made paintings in a big hurry. My brush danced well. My watercolour painting done in a short time seems more lively and better. Colourful buoys were fun to paint. I love playing with colours to depict water or an ocean.
The sketch club meeting cheered me up, when I had been working on a storyboard. It's important for an artist to go outside and enjoy sunshine and different circumstances.
Oh, yes, I went to a secondhand book fair at Sydney uni on Sat (Saturday 10 to Wednesday 14 September). I bought Ronald Searle's "Ah, yes, I remember it well....". Does anyone know him? His eye is so good to find a subject and cook them up with pen. Hilarious. His drawing skills are amazing -- he can draw everything in a traditional methods. Particularly, his architecture impressed me. Then, he can create subjects into sophisticated caricatures! Only the shame is I cannot understand his French-English jokes.
If you have a spare time, pop up the book fair for treasure hunting. You may find your favourite.
Friends, Happy Painting!
