Mrs Macquarie's Chair


Urban sketchers, Sydney, met at Boy Charlton Pool on Saturday for a sketchathon. We had 30 min at each site to sketch.  The work above is of Fort Denison which was a penal and defence site in earlier days.  The governor's wife, Mrs Macquarie  would sit on a chair, carved into the sandstone, and look upon  the harbour including this view.

      I sat under a sandstone overhanging rock to sketch this view across a bay towards the governor general's home and the Royal Botannical Gardens.

After lunch in the Domain, one last sketch looking towards the Art Gallery of NSW.
It was a beautiful day after many days of rain, greatly enjoyed.
