View Full Version : Sketching at Roma St Parkland

06-03-2015, 03:29 AM
I went with the Brisbane Urban Sketchers to Roma Street parkland yesterday for our Tuesday Sketchout. It was a gorgeous day and I got three sketches done, all in my Holcroft 225gsm sketchbook 11" x 14"


It was lovely sitting here with my friend Deidre. We were surrounded by water dragons.

I ordered a Noodlers Konrad Brush pen some time ago, and it arrived just in time for my Tuesday sketchout. I was excited to try it out, and it surpassed my expectations, as did the Noodlers Forest green ink I had bought awhile ago and not yet tried. The brush pen I bought, has a clear barrel, so I can see how much ink is in it..

I used my waterbrush on the ink here. The Forest green ink is not waterproof, and is a load of fun when using a waterbrush. I got some cool colours, even copper.

Here is a photo of the water dragons. There were twenty of them at one stage. Magical.

JJ, these came out great! What could be better than a nice location, friends to sketch with, and new supplies to try out...sounds perfect to me.

Wow! Great sketches and I love the photo of the lizards, please post that to the RIL too since I'd love to draw them. Cool brush pen. Thanks for showing the photo along with the sketches, you really got that shadowed round thing in the water and the odd shaped pillar in good perspective.
