Down and Out


Back in March, some friends and I travelled to Malmsbury on a drawing expedition. I made two drawings that day – one of the Malmsbury Botanic Gardens and this one.

One of my friends likes to draw derelict buildings and these abandoned structures were ideal subjects. Situated beside the Old Calder Highway, they look very forlorn.

I used wax crayon in this drawing.

  1. Margaret, I believe you have perfected the “saggy draggy” look of an old, abandoned building!! Ha ha

    • Thanks Lori, The buildings have been in a decrepit state for as long as I can remember.

  2. You got the feeling of the abandoned building very well.

    • Thanks Susan, Drawing an old, decrepit building was a new experience for me.
