Sketchcrawl in Norwood

I am late posting my sketches from last weekend's 39th SketchCrawl, in the quaint suburb of Norwood. We had a great turnout with some new participants. The Lamp Post, a lovely shop full of interesting old stuff was very welcoming, letting us 'crawl' all over it inside and out, and providing delicious soup and sandwiches at lunchtime on a chilly autumn day.
I drew the outside of the shop, before increasing traffic blocked my view, and some raindrops drove me under cover. Two women at their food stall were not at all keen on being sketched, and emphatically turned their backs. The newspaper man, however, was very happy to be my subject as he wove amongst the passing cars and trucks - I turned to the old doll's pram outside the shop in between glimpses of him.

You can see other sketches and photos from the day here on Facebook and here on the Sketchcrawl site.

It looks like it was a great day, Cathy!

The suburb of Norwood seems to be full of character, not just the architecture, but the people as well!
