Had high hopes a of big sketching morning/day today...but after 2hours (one of which was in a cafe) I packed up and went home. Strange...my 'energy pills' just didn't do their normal thing today!!

Hyde Park Barracks by Francis Greenway
St James Church by Francis Greenway - the oldest church building in City of Sydney

After making a deciosn of the colours to start using (I am sure it will change) I had to do a trial sketch...a cup of tea and some architecture of course (this timeRegency style in honour of Francis Greenway who designed St James and is considered the first Australian archtiect)
