Chinese Garden

Week 5 of my Keeping a Sketchbook course was at the Chinese Friendship Garden. A beautiful sunny but breezy day to be outside. We sat in a little pavilion and talked about colour theory and colour plans before putting it all into practice.

I deliberately drew this small pavilion in one-point perspective, as I was drawing together with one of the participants in the course who had a special interest in learning to draw buildings.


  1. i was there this past Sunday...I was itching to sit and draw, but my teenage boys were somewhat antsy and I couldn't stand still for more than 30 seconds let alone draw. I am insanely jealous!!!

  2. When I was in Sydney, this garden was one of my favorite places that I'd seen. Thanks for bringing the memories back.
