Larger painting of the jacarandas in bloom

Jacarandas A3

Saturday the 19th November the Joburg urbansketchers spent the morning in Greenside, drawing the flowering Jacaranda trees. Coincidentally the cricket fans arriving on the 3rd day of the test between South Africa and Australia dressed in pink for the game today.

I think there must have been around 9 of us that turned out for the sketching which was great. My first sketch was a an A3 – probably got too wrapped up in details. The second one felt better being smaller on A5, and quicker.
