My house is near a river, which is actually the western edge of Sydney Harbour. We have many parks along its edge, and lately I have joined with a few other artists to paint in these parks in the hot sunshine! Today was perfect weather, with a cool breeze. This work is on canvas, but not stretched. My Facebook page shows an "in situ" photograph. It will be shown in my next exhibition on May 1.

Charcoal sketch and painting from the Observatory Hill in Sydney.
Unlike last time (in the bandstand) I was positioned out on the grass, and at times I had whole bus loads of tourists behind me!
It was quite a challenge to maintain concentration. There were little children up close, so engrossed and watching every stroke. (I use big house brushes.)
But I chatted with lots of people and it was fun: like when you are walking a dog, everyone is much friendlier.
