The Old Post Office, Berwick

First sketch for the year 2019! 

Afternoon shadows on the iconic Old Post Office, Berwick, Victoria. Built in 1885, it is considered architecturally significant as a superior example of a dual function building (combined post office and court house) with a secondary function (Postmaster's residence at the rear).



This was done from the little park that divides the High Street that runs through the shopping strip. A sunny afternoon but not too hot. 



Loose watercolour was done first followed by a 40 degree Sailor Fude pen. 


I was at first disappointed with the roughness and wonkiness of the drawing but am happy that it ended up looking a confident sketch.
