Tuesday sketching in Brunswick Street, Fitzroy where it was coooold! Well cold enough for a pampered Aussie anyway! I had to do a little hoicking up (yes, made up phrase) of these buildings as they are running downhill. So the rooflines aren't quite so accurate but at least the buildings didn't run off the bottom of my paper. Sila Espresso Bar stars - but so many bricks to draw. Then @bonapfitzroy where @auntyfrank and I hid out of the wind for lunch. Yummm pumpkin soup and fresh pieces of baguette as we looked out the windows at passers by braving the elements. The staff took a video of my very long (and still growing) streetscape. One more building to go before the next corner. Moving along!! #brunswickstreetsketchography #melbourneurbansketchers #brunswickstreet #fitzroy #brunswickstreetfitzroy #cafesketch #urbansketchers #usk #streetscape #victorianarchitecture #archisketch #bockingford #melbourne #sketch #cityofyarra

Surely this building has eyelids? Last Tuesday's sketch in Brunswick Street, Fitzroy.  I still need to paint it of course and it's calling out for a bright yellow and lots of orangey brickey goodness.  #melbourneurbansketchers #brunswickstreetsketchography #brunswickstreet #fitzroy #brunswickstreetfitzroy #cityofyarra #urbansketching #urbansketchers #usk #bockingfird

Doughnut Time sign in Brunswick Street, Fitzroy proudly bearing two doughnuts. During Melbourne's second wave of covid last  year, when we locked down for 4 months, we desperately looked forward to a Doughnut Day' - zero deaths due to covid in Victoria. Then 'Double Doughnut Day' arrived - zero new locally acquired cases as well as zero deaths. Doughnut shops were sold out as we celebrated and started to emerge from isolation. Yesterday (and today) were Triple Doughnut Days with no imported cases in quarantine either, from nearly 14,000 tests. Sadly this shop is long closed and shuttered but it is still surely a sign of the times - possibly in more ways than one. Thanks to @pr_designthinkingdrawings for joining us all the way from Brisbane and @lunchsketch !  @doughnut_time #brunswickstreetsketchography #melbourneurbansketchers #urbansketchers #urbansketchersaustralia #usk #fitzroy #cityofyarra #doughnutday #doubleddoughnutday #doubledonutday #melbourne #brunswickstreet #brunswickstreetfitzroy #bockingford
