Thumbs up JJ's 2016 Sketches June - December

What an awesome morning, with the Brisbane Urban Sketchers. It was a gorgeous day, overcast and moody. Perfect drawing weather..
Mowbray park is an historical park in East Brisbane, named after the Reverend Thomas Mowbray, who arrived in 1847. He was one of the earliest settlers and became known as the father of Presbyterianism. In 1851, he opened Brisbane's first Presbyterian Church in Grey Street, South Brisbane.


First sketch of the day was done in my Mont Marte A5 sketchbook with my lamy pen (medium nib) and my Hero fountain pen (fude nib)






My second sketch, I had started the sky on it earlier, but because of the closeness of the day, it took ages to dry. After we all had had our morning tea and show and tell, my friend Margot and I went back down to the park to finish our work. It was so peaceful, and the sky was forever changing. I loved it.

This last photo is looking toward the mouth of the river. What awesome views the houses around here have, and what an awesome place to build for the early settlers.

Smile PADDINGTON - Caxton Street

The title "Paddington" was given to this area after the London suburb of the same name. Paddington was originally referred to as being "Back of the Jail". The main jail was located on Petrie Terrace from 1860 – 1883 Brisbane Petrie Terrace Gaol accommodated 96 prisoners in 2 cell blocks.
The Police Barracks was from 1883 – 1885 Petrie Terrace Police Depot, where police training, operations, stabling of horses, and also a motor vehicle depot.


In the 1860s there was a rumour that gold had been discovered in the Paddington area. Two shafts were sunk, one in the Paddington Cemetery, but no gold was found.

My first sketch was of the Caxton Street Hall - Built in 1883 by the Loyal United Brothers Lodge. It has served as an Oddfellows Friendly Society Lodge (1884-1916), a clothing factory (1909-38) and a Labor Party Hall (1928-99).




Second sketch was of this fun building on the corner of Caxton Street and Weetman Street.
Both sketches were don on Arches 140lb cp 11"x15" with Pen and ink, and watercolour.







That is my easel set up you see

Arrow NEW FARM PARK Bandstand

A beautiful day out with the Brisbane urban Sketchers. It was sunny, but quite cold in the breeze on the river. New farm park is right on the river front. I sat with a friend and I drew the historic bandstand. I did struggle with my perspective, and took much longer than I intended, so I didn't get the drawing finished.



Arches 140ln cp
2B graphite

Nice sketch JJ, remember left of a corner slope down left, right down right.

Re: JJ's 2016 Sketches June - December

Doug, thank you so much for your ever welcome advice!! Yes it is really complicated. I started in light pencil strokes, and there was much erasing.. I see exactly what you mean too. xx

Debby thank you girl.
