What a super day we had. There were only three of us, but we had the best day ever.
It is ANZAC weekend here. That is the three day long commemoration of the soldiers who died in WWI ANZAC stands for Australia and New Zealand Army Corp. Most people go away for the long weekend.
However, three of us were here to sketch, and we started at the amazing Mayne Medical School at Herston, on to the Old Museum on Herston Road, and then finishing up at the Grand old Jubilee Hotel for lunch.
My sketch, drawn in a brand new Moleskine A5 sketchbook. I elected to sketch the three stops as a montage on a double page spread, using my lamy pen and a cheap China pen and black noodlers ink.
Mayne Medical School built 1938-1939
Old Museum built in 1891 as the Agricultural Exhibition Building, and later other parts of the building were used as a Concert Hall and an Art Gallery. It is now the Youth Orchestra Conservatory.
Last stop the magnificent Jubilee Hotel. This gorgeous Hotel was built in 1887 designed by Richard Gailey, and it opened in 1888 - the same year that the Empire and Prince Consort Hotels, also designed by Gailey, opened too. They valley has the most amazing heritage listed buildings, a sketchers paradise.
