Abbotsford Convent Sketchmeet

So nice to finally get to sketch with USKMelbourne! 

This is the most imposing of the 11 historic buildings in the Abbotsford Convent, Melbourne. Formerly the Convent of the Good Shepherd, this ex-monastic site on 16 beautiful acres is now home to several art galleries and cafes. 

My sketch (including colour) was finished on site. I should have taken more time in getting the angles correct because I failed to capture the soaring nature of the building above me. It was a very enjoyable day (and such an interesting location!).

 The sketchmeet finished up at the back of the building for the usual show-and-tell and group photo.
