Out sketching on my bicycleย 

I had a good ride to a sketch session with the Melbourne sketch group. To be honest, I usually don’t sketch as well with the group as when I am on my own; I spend way too much time chatting to and catching up with friends  ๐Ÿ˜„. 

Docklands watercolour by Evelyn Yee

On the way home, I stopped at Docklands (above). The weather was perfect for sketching outdoors.

Yarra Promenade watercolour by Evelyn Yee

I rode on and then stopped at Yarra Promenade. This is s busy place by the river with cars, trams, cyclists and pedestrian. 

It was a good day out on the bike. I hope to do that again soon; before it gets cold again.

The Last Jar sketches

People sketches by Evelyn Yee

Had a lovely time with my friends at The Last Jar, an Irish Pub in Melbourne. I met the lady on the bottom left, Margaret Mary – she dedicated her song to all the men she broke her heart ๐Ÿ˜Š.

The entertainment was superb – and there were lots of opportunities to sketch. The musicians came by to look at our sketches ๐Ÿ˜Š

Carnations from the market – white flowers are a challenge but a dark background helps push the flowers in front

Succulents watercolour by Evelyn Yee

I often look at my beautiful succulents and think how complex they are to capture. I decided to try…

The bunch of flowers that was given by my lovely friend – not sure what they were but they were nice to paint.

Till next post, have a happy weekend.

New online shop item

Landscape in watercolour by Evelyn Yee
Another post (above) on my online shop – this one was completed recently in Gippsland. I am up to 11 items now, well short of the max of 100 so even though it will be a while, I will keep uploading.

People indoors

Since the One Week 100 People Challenge I have been inspired to sketch people. People are everywhere so there is never a shortage of subjects. And everyone is unique.

I was at the Southgate food court for a quick lunch and I kept myself busy sketching while eating.

This was sketch in Chez Dre in South Melbourne – was a fun interior sketch with people over breakfast.

Finally a sketch over coffee at the NGV members’ lounge (above).

Will keep drawing people – loads of fun and need to practice.
