Art Traveller – Location: Cockatoo Island


I stayed in Sydney for the majority of May living with a couple of friends, and used the time to catch up on finishing some personal paintings as well as explore around. One of the places I went to that was the most inspiring was Cockatoo Island. It is a small heritage site in Sydney Harbour that has a lot of buildings that were built in different time periods which make it even more interesting.

Really want to do some paintings referencing a lot of what I saw there. I recommend if you’re in Sydney and want some artistic environment inspiration to visit it. It’s only 20 minutes from Circular Quay – and make sure to take your camera with you for textures đŸ˜€ Here are some that I took.

    Oh Jess, I took a peak in here as I thought you would have some of your great environment sketches bummer only the photos, oh well to be honest (I took a bunch of shots when I was visiting last year thinking these could be great for illustration) and I haven’t used any yet but plenty of potential for an illustrator for sure. A great day out none-the-less.
