Brunch stop on our way home from Warrnambool. Stephen used to camp here as a child and apparently there used to be a shipwreck in the cove. #melbourneurbansketchers #urbansketchers #usk #travelsketch #panorama #portfairy #regionalvictoria #bockingford #watercoloursketch #portcampbell #globalsketch

Spoiler alert for anyone guessing where my last sketch was as this reveals it all. This was my first visit to Port Fairy - where, pre-covid, the plan was to sketch with a small group of other urban sketchers, run a workshop and exhibit. Sigh. Maybe one day! Regardless it was lovely to drop by @blarneybooksandart to say hello to Jo, and admire the bookstacks by @jodiwileyart on the building. Looking for a spot out of the wind, we ended up on the banks of the Moyne River. I was sketching one of my long panoramas while my husband patiently read and waited for me. I checked the time as I was drawing. 2.30. Going well - not too long - maybe an hour. The next time I checked it was 4.45 pm. Oops. Time flies when I sketch! #melbourneurbansketchers #urbansketchers #usk #travelsketch #panorama #portfairy #regionalvictoria #bockingford #watercoloursketch #moyneriver #globalsketch

So who can guess where I sketched this? As a hint, we were in Warrnambool last night .... Not as windy today thank goodness and actually really lovely. Perhaps too lovely as afterwards I realised I was a little sunburnt. Alas. #melbourneurbansketchers #urbansketchers #usk #bockingford #sailboats #watercoloursketch #travelsketch #regionalvictoria

It's a while since my last cafe sketch with my husband patiently reading his kindle while I finish. Speedy for me - about half an hour, but I think it was a good stage for me to finish. Lunch at  @2tartsbaking in Warrnambool, which is all glammed up for Christmas already. #melbourneurbansketchers #usk #urbansketchers #helendrawsvictoria #sketchbook #sketch #portrait #cafesketch #warrnambool #patisserie #hospitality #bakery #hahnemühle #watercoloursketch #travelsketch

A windy day spent sketching at the corner of Westgarth and Brunswick Streets, Fitzroy with my peeps. Another one of my long panorama sketches but as I was approached about my sketch of Fitzroy Cellars I thought I'd share that snippet first. Of course it still needs watercolour but that will be another visit.  #helendrawsbrunswickstreet #brunswickstreetsketchography #melbourneurbansketchers #usk #urbansketchers #streetsketch #fitzroy #bockingford #urbansketch #brunswickstreet #penandink #inksketch #linedrawing @fitzroycellars @markdenverantiquesandvintage @vinylrevivalstore @pollybarfitzroy
