Goldmines Hotel

Goldmines Hotel Bendigo
One sunny Saturday I went to the Goldmines Hotel with my family for lunch. The kids were very excited to show me around its beautiful garden, which was full of little nooks that could be inspirations for future paintings.

I attempted to sketch one corner while waiting for the food, chatting to my family and avoiding offers of help from my youngest.

Amusingly once my meal arrived it turned out to colour coordinate with my sketch.

The food was average and a bit of disappointment compared to the beautiful surroundings, friendly service and interesting selection of beers, though my husband, who’ve been there for lunch previously, informed me that on previous occasion it was substantially better.

    Your sketch is lovely. I’d love to be able to draw like that. I really should give it more of a go. I admire your discipline of doing a sketch a day – I’m sure you must have seen a lot of improvement since 2012. As I’m always telling my kids, the best way to get good at something is to do it! Same about the meal.

      Thank you, Kate. I tell my kids the same thing and now they say it back to me whenever I complain about not being good enough at doing something. 🙂
