Thumbs up ART-Urban Sketches by JJ Feb - June 2018

Hello every one..

It is February and I have finally done my first sketch for 2018. (I have been under the weather a bit, but now I am back)

The Brisbane City Sketchers had their first Thursday Sketchout, and we went to New Farm Park. . New farm park was created in 1914, and currently covers 15.0076 hectares of land. Some 600 trees were planted including jacaranda trees that line the circular road around the park.

It’s beautiful! I love how you used only two types of mark-making. The circles for leaves are very expressive.

Re: ART-Urban Sketches by JJ Feb - June 2018

Fabulous morning with the Brisbane City Sketchers at Mater Hill. We sketched the old Private Hospital. Aubigny Place was the original Mater Private Hospital building, on what is now known as Mater Hill, opening in 1910 The building was designed by Hall and Dods who also designed the Lady Lamington Nurses Home at Royal Brisbane & Women's Hospital (RBWH)

Re: ART-Urban Sketches by JJ Feb - June 2018

good start

We've got an unofficial branch of urban sketchers here now that a friend set up and it's very popular - they plan to affiliate eventually. Every meet so far has either been too cold for me or I've had something else on . It's going to be their April meet before I catch up with them.

Thumbs up Spectacle Garden 16.02.18

Sketching with my friend on a very hot summers day in the Spectacle Garden at Roma Street parkland. The Spectacle Garden at Colin Campbell Place displays a vivid array of colour all year and includes a collection of flowers, herbs, water features and art works.Colin Campbell Place is in horticulturalist.

History of Roma Street Parkland
Pre-1825 – Local indigenous community used the area for meetings and ceremonies
1825 – Roma Street Parkland area was part of the original Brisbane settlement
1875 – Adjacent train station built as part of the main western railway to Brisbane linking Ipswich to Toowoomba
1911 to 1934 – Extensive redevelopment in the area, to support the increase in services
1920 – Massive excavation removed 554,300 cubic metres of earth, permanently altering the steep terrain creating the current day artificial escarpment and the boundary of the former Albert Park
World War II – Roma Street train station used for transporting war materials and military personnel up north
2000 – Construction of the current Roma Street Parkland
2001 – Updated Roma Street Parkland opened to the public


Both sketches done in my A4 Holcroft Sketchbook Pen and Watercolour.
