Вызывая воспоминания на побережье Виктории

[Guest post by Angela Williams in Melbourne, Australia] Returning home always provides the opportunity to revisit places of precious childhood memories.

Looking Up (and Down) in Sydney’s Queen Victoria Building

[Stephanie Bower, Seattle, in Sydney] I do like a good sketching challenge! A rainy Sunday morning, this was sketched while eating breakfast in the Queen Victoria Building in central Sydney and painted later that morning in the same spot.
