Arrow Roma Street Parklands

What a wonderful morning, sketching at the Roma Street Parklands with the Brisbane City Sketchers..

In 1825 the Roma Street Parkland area was part of the original Brisbane settlement. In 1875 a terminal station in Roma Street was constructed as part of the main western railway to Brisbane linking Ipswich and Toowoomba. Local Indigenous people used the area for thousands of years conducting meetings and ceremonies. Construction began of the current Parkland in 2000 and the parkland opened to the public in 2001.


I sat in Fern Gully to sketch this mother duck and her seven babies. I did the same last year too, this is her favourite place to rear them.















The lady right facing brought her gorgeous four year old granddaughter with her today, and April made three of those artworks below. She is an amazing little girl.

Lovely and exciting areas to paint from with great results! Glad the little one is learning early to sketch and do art.

Re: ART-JJs Urban Sketches August - December 2018

I had a lovely morning with the Brisbane City Sketchers, sketching in King George Square. I chose the Law building this morning, because I really loved the shapes between the Town Hall and the Law Building.
The Law building was built over 40 years ago, and the facade we Brisbanites affectionately call "Gotham Towers" or "The Batman Building" was built in 1995.






Sketched in my handmade 7" x 8" sketchbook pen and watercolour
