Sketching Sydney

Last weekend I took my Mum to Sydney for her 60th birthday. I wanted to do something really special and because she'd never been to Sydney before I hatched this plan: two nights, seeing the sights and sketching like crazy. Mum has started keeping a sketchbook too, so it's really nice to be able to share the sketching experience.

I won't lie, the prospect of a child-free weekend wasn't hideous (and thanks to Kim for doing the hard yards last weekend!). Of course, I missed those kidlets like crazy. But Mum and I had a fabulous time and made many wonderful memories.

But instead of banging on about it, I'll show you. Here's a selection from my sketchbook (I've never completed so many pages in such a short amount of time!).

 And here are some pictures:

Happy birthday, Mum :)
