This morning I went to the park earlier than usual arriving in time to see the start of the regular Saturday 5K run. Today being halloween there was a scary selection of ghosts, ghouls, aliens and vampires. I did draw too but I’ll post that tomorrow Advertisements
Autumn brings such a glorious untidy tangle to the garden and Hotham Park rose garden is a colourful mess of remnants of summer glory. Fortified with excellant coffee and muffin from the lovely new cafe I sat for a happy hour trying to catch this with pastels. The result ? Well it does help if…
Today the forecast was sun all day so what better than spending another few hours in Hotham Park sketching. I’m going with pastels at the moment as I like the instant colour and the challenge of using a limited number of colours.
I’ve already posted on this blog today but thought I would share the sketch I managed to do before the sun went in. Not a great work of art, but having done this I will remember it better.
This morning I took my pastels to Hotham Park to sketch before the vibrant autumn colours all get blown away. I found workmen clearing leaves into huge plies and resisted the temptation to revert to childhood and run through them shouting though I did see three dogs doing just that.

Today I decided to visit the park before all the autumn colours are gone. I am never disappointed as there is always something to delight the eye. The Mediterranean garden is filled with colour and texture
