St Mary's Cathedral

One of the towers, St Mary's, watercolor and pen
Some fellow sketchers and I met today at St Mary's Cathedral in Sydney.  St Mary's is a Roman Catholic church of Gothic revival architecture, build in the 19th century.  It's very large and drawing just parts of it seemed the only sensible option.  We spent about one and a half hours inside and it was beautiful, the golden light  pouring through the stained glass windows.  We were there in-between masses and there were a number of tourists and those in quiet contemplation there too.
Afterwards I had a spot of lunch at a cafe overlooking St Mary's and took the opportunity to sketch it from there-see the last pic.
