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.
