Crazy Victorians

The buildings in my neighbourhood are predominantly wooden Victorian houses (with the odd masonry or brick exception). They are what makes the area interesting, but are without a doubt an Urban Sketchers nightmare. What were they thinking making us draw all those corbels, dentils and multi layered cornices?!

Jervois Road...

I got so caught up with the detail on this one (my local library) that it has totally slumped, I have unfortunately lost it's very vertical proportions. I'll definitely be back though and nail it next time.
