I was wandering home the other day and I noticed there was a comfortable seat right opposite Newtown Station so I sat down to sketch it. It's a funny old station building for a very busy station 4km from Sydney city centre. All along beside it is boarded up now, as they are finally renovating it in several phases. The heritage buildings will turn into a 'retail opportunity'. Who knows what they will do to it. They had a public meeting about it, but they only put up the notices an hour or so before it began. Strange. I had to dodge the buses (visually) while I sketched as it was morning peak hour and this is the intersection of two very busy roads.
