Sketch Day at 'Greycliffe Homestead'

What a great day we had yesterday at Greycliffe Homestead!
Our lovely ladies enjoyed the atmosphere of this historical building, stepping back in time to the late 1800's early 1900's.

Here are some photos which capture the 'essence' of living in that era on Greycliffe Homestead.
Our guide, Tina, from the Banana Shire Historical Committee was kind enough to show us through and provided us with interesting information on the Nott family who lived there.

What a fascinating place! A 'must see' if you are ever visiting our lovely town, Biloela :)

After the tour we enjoyed morning tea with our guest artist from Emu Park, Bev, showing us her beautiful watercolour paintings.

Then it was off to find the perfect spot for some serious sketching :)

  1. Hi Maria,
    I'm so impressed with the Blog.
    The slideshow is wonderful, I was so excited when I saw it. Well Done. So keen to share this with the other members. Bev's work is so lovely. I look forward to seeing her exhibit her work in the Biloela Library Art Space next year. Chat Soon,
    Kym :)
