Winthrop Hall, UWA

An impromptu sketching session this morning down at the University of Western Australia (UWA). Sitting on the grass in the shade of a large tree sketching Winthrop Hall – the ceremonial heart of UWA. Opened in 1932 the building has a Cordova tile roof and is faced with sandstone and limestone from nearby Donnybrook. A reflection pool lies in front of the building.




This was a bit of a scary and fiddly building to sketch….my first attempt to draw this I abandoned and started over….this second attempt is better….I am not an architect so drawing something like this is always a challenge….but I had fun.
