Art Gallery of New South Wales

One of the rooms in the Art Gallery of NSW, pen and watercolour

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.
