QVB and Anzac Bridge - Alissa Duke

Sketching the Queen Victoria Building.

A stunning building in Sydney. It dominates an entire block, however there are not a lot of comfortable places to sit and sketch this building as it in a busy area of the city. I have discovered that during the weekdays the foyer of the Bank building opposite it is open , and has lots of seats. On Sundays the block around it is a lot quieter and you can prop yourself up against a doorway or on a set of steps. A Great view is from the restaurant at the Hilton - but access is not so easy......

Drawn quickly on the spot


ran out of time so it was inked and coloured at home

View from Bellevue , an historic house, which has the wonderful Blackwattle Cafe. I must return to sketch much more here....
