Old Treasury Building, Melbourne


I drew the Treasury Building in Melbourne a few days ago. It was a cold winter day and braving the cold, I managed to complete the above sketch on location, but had to go indoors to colour it.


It houses the original gold vaults in Melbourne. These next two drawings were completed sometime ago and I have forgotten about them until just now. We were in fact escaping the heat of Melbourne's summer early in the year and had gone down to the basement to draw.


The basement was also where the caretaker of the building lived in the 1900s.
