walking home from work- Sydney

My walk to and from work each day in Sydney takes me past some busy areas. There is a very large busy building site. I can see it all from above from the tearoom at work, but walking past at street level there is boarding that blocks off a lot of the view.

Then I walk past lots of tourist areas, including Darling Harbour, with the day cruise boats and this jet boat. My friends from Brisbane had just been on one of these in Sydney Harbour so I decided to draw it. Then I wanted to include the monorail, then I had to draw all in between. There are so many layers. I somehow did not leave room for the expressway and buildings at the end of Cockle Bay.

It was not what I started out to draw , but this is how it ended. - a slice of Sydney
