ANZAC Day

I sketched a piper, an unknown soldier, a police, the three sculptures at the cenotaph and in St Mary cathedral. The #band members and people enjoyed my #sketch. Thank you, Sydney sketch club members, for a lovely #friendship! Many people talked to me. Communication is the beauty of universal language, drawing and painting. The #Sydney #Cenotaph is a #heritage-listed #monument located in #MartinPlace. #BertramMackennal’s #sculptures : a #soldier and a #sailor.

The #Sydney #Cenotaph is a #heritage-listed #monument located in #MartinPlace. #BertramMackennal’s #sculptures : a #soldier and a #sailor. As well as colour, very good to study #blackandwhite. I always think of a #livemodel . I did research on the uniform last night and got on the sketch. Colour use always fascinates me.


The #police #officer and his #colleagues took photos of my #work. Lovely to see people smiling. I thanked for every #veteran #soldier #police etc's hard work whom I had met.

The #unknown #soldier 's #photo with #poppies on the #cenotaph . I thought of many things. #sydneyaustralia #ANZAC #sacrifice #nationalism #nationalidentity #publicservice

Lest we forget. I coloured my black & white sketch in St Mary cathedral. George Lambert's sculpture, “Fallen Soldier.” Very moving. One poppy touched my heart most. 私がGeorge Lambertの "倒れし兵士"の #彫像 を St Mary cathedralでみたとき, 一輪, つつましく添られた #ポピー が 一番胸を 打ち, スケッチして, 後で色をつけました. #アンザックデー は、第一次世界大戦中に戦ったオーストラリア・ニュージーランド軍(ANZAC)を #追悼 する日です。各地で #慰霊 #鎮魂 #行進 #式典 などさまざまな #行事 をします。*ポピーは, 慰霊, 追悼の 花です. #水彩画 #水彩

Painting = Looking at Subject

This boy stole my dear friend's heart and mine, too. Have you ever observed a cat's movement, colours and texture? It's a great fun. So fascinating. A first step of drawing / painting is "Looking." Looking at a subject carefully with a great interest is, in my view, a half way through in the painting process. Watching gives me the solutions and challenges in drawing. Friends, enjoy looking and painting together!

#watercolour #birmancat #pencildrawing #sketch この, イケナイ #男の子 は 友人の #ハート を 盗んで #虜 に しました! #猫#毛#毛づくろい を みるの は 興味深いです. よく見る こと は 私の 考え では, 半分 既絵 を かいている の に 等しいです.
