Spring Sketchabout - Alissa Duke

After a cool grey start, the blue sky sun came out mid morning as a group of about 20 sketchers enjoyed the final Spring Sketchabout. We went to the Palace Rose Gardens, learnt a bit about their fascinating history before finding flowers, statues and vistas to draw and paint.

Kerry from RBG mentioned the sustainable planting of the Rose Gardens. I quickly found some ladybirds on the rose stems, doing their job.

We stopped for lunch in the shade of a large tree and after chatting and comparing sketches,a few of us continued on for one or two more sketches. This is the view from the Band Lawn, across the Pond to Sydney city.

a wonderful day
