Also sketching at the Powerhouse Museum

I was also at the Powerhouse on Saturday and finally got to draw this horse drawn fire engine. It is so red and bright and shiny - there's no way you can capture that in watercolour pencils but I gave it a try. My new sketchbook is too big to fit on the scanner so I took the photo with my new phone.
There are so many machines there that I'm longing to draw. I love drawing old machines - but I'll try a less complex one next time.

These musical instruments are only a few of many, but I particularly liked the way the shapes of these ones worked together. I felt like something less challenging to draw after lunch and this is what I did.
