Geelong Maritime Museum

from w
As a break from sorting books at the Donation in Kind Depot I did a quick sketch next door at the Maritime Museum. Then this evening while watching television I added a bit of biro. I'm afraid the chains on the anchor look a bit like squashed pasta. I might take some photos next week to use as a reference for some better drawings/paintings. This building was once the stables of Osborne House I believe, a very nice building that, alas, is to be altered to be turned into some kind of development in the future. It now houses classrooms for training adults as well as a very busy local history resource.

You look as if you have been busy Wendy, now the new editor for your local neighbourhood watch what with that and an expensive tree you own you will need to change your image!!
I can see a touch of Edna Everidge creeping in.
As usual love your sketches.

Our Newcomb neighbourhood is rather ordinary I suppose - yes, like Moonee Ponds of Edna Everidge fame, but we do have access to some good places such as Eastern Beach and the Botanical Gardens and we are 5 minutes away from central Geelong with the library, art gallery, $2 dollar shops, cafes, movie theatres etc. and that gigantic barn called Westfield where parking can be outrageously high.
