Market Theatre



Just two of us on our First Friday of the month sketch date last week in Newtown - we walked around to the other side of Mary Fitzgerald Square to sit in front of the Market Theatre to draw. When I sketched here a couple of years ago, it was the up and coming, vibey Market Precinct with art galleries, restaurants and street markets, but it's taken a bit of a backward step with nothing much happening besides being a thoroughfare. Lots of building going on though (hence the construction workers in top sketch), so perhaps it will rise again as a hub of activity and enterprise.

Cathy, I love all your people sketches.

What a fabulous building! I really like how you've captured it and the people around it. Did it rain? That's a very brooding sky.

Thanks Carol and Sue - it did rain a bit, though not as much as it had for the week or two before - it was a very threatening sky though!
