Tree in Williamstown
Haven't been posting drawings this week because we are busy catching up with various chores. Saturday afternoon we went to a Fijian/Cook Islander wedding in Williamstown and after the service a huge Moreton Bay fig caught my attention. The building behind is the manse and it certainly needs a coat of paint. My unobtrusive sketching attracted attention from local parishioners however and they told me that Williamstown was the first settlement in Melbourne with many old buildings but these days it is an expensive area - gentrified I suppose.. The tree causes anxiety as the roots go out under the road but some people do not want it removed.
I plan to do some sketching/painting this afternoon and it's 35 degrees outside today, very hot! I planned to draw a bit last week but there were knocks on the door every time I got out my pencils and sketchbook.
