The Art Gallery of New South Wales was established on 1880 and holds a wonderful collection of art from ancient to contemporary. The building has grown over the years with extensions which contrast with the original facade which I have sketched below.
Right now a portrait competition is exhibited called The Archibald prize. This is an annual competition and to win it greatly enhances an artist's reputation.
The weather was iffy today, a forecast of heavy showers, so after a quick sketch outside it was nice to spend the rest of the day in the gallery looking at art and sketching one of the spaces.
