Melbourne houses


I rather like this and hope to make it the basis for a painting later on. I drew it while we were in Melbourne from our bedroom window. I liked the teir on teir of rooves I couls see.
Today I went to have lunch with a friend and to talk textile stuff. We had a great day and I got some sewing for a banner done. In September we have a decorative arts festival and need to get a few things done for it.
I did draw the view from her front garden while I was there and that is on my other blog withmybootsandsketchbook
I had hoped to see some whales while I passed Middleton as there are supposed to be two mothers with calves but nothing was there, they do move around the area so I guess they had moved a bit further up the coast.
We are hoping for more rain in the next couple of days, we really havent had any for weeks and I even had a sprinkler on yesterday as one of the camellias was looking a bit sad. It is still very cold. Tomorrow it is Adelaide and see my mother then babysit two of our grandchildren.

Wow, what a great sketch. It looks so complicated and sure will make a wonderful painting!

Reminds me of some roof tops I've viewed from windows, but didn't sketch! Great job!

Another lovely sketch! I always love this kind of scene too.

This is an interesting view the way the houses overlap each other. It gives me an idea for the view out my studio window which is sort of jumbled up in an interesting way too. Thanks for the inspiration!
