Flinders Street Station is an incredible building in Melbourne. As soon as I saw a photo of it I knew it would be my priority to sketch it. It didn’t disappoint in real life. We braved the searing 46-degree heat of this particular day to get a glimpse of some of the Melbourne sights. Luckily enough we stayed in the area long enough to visit the city a few more times when it was not quite so hot, including getting tattoos at the Melbourne Tattoo Company. When in Melbourne….! One of the most beautiful features of the city, in my opinion, is the contrast between the old buildings and the modern glassy skyscrapers, which is what I tried to capture in my next sketch from Russell Street. And then, of course, old buildings versus modern buildings, versus city transport…the (modern) tram viewed from Federation Square. One of the really cool things we came across is the free city tram which looks old school and just does a loop around the city. They run in opposite directions and turn up every 20 minutes or so. It’s a great way to get from one side of the city centre to the other. There is a commentary telling you about the city but its not loud enough for how busy the tram was when we were on it, so we couldn’t here. It’s such a great thing to have these old-style trams for free, we were big fans. I had to draw it of course.
