Sydney sketching : sketching Sydney. Postcode 2010. St Vincents Hospital.

September 15, 2011

Graphite pencil, Winsor & Newton watercolours.

Still outside the O’Brien Building, St Vincent’s Hospital. I was struck by the contrast between the blocks of concrete, ubiquitous contemporary outdoor furniture  in public spaces outside buildings, the purple daisies in flower, an overhanging tree and the architectural detail of the 19th century hospital building. The new public entrance literally cuts across the second storey of the earlier building, something I’ve downplayed here.
