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

Thank you Bil and Doug.

Bill the mil is quite a stubby structure. I love that they had a time ball on the top..

Great sketches, JJ. I am impressed with the arches in the Spring Hill sketch. Love the lighthouse too.

Thumbs up Williams Street

I had a fun morning yesterday. Five of us sketching in Queens park (Part of the Historical Treasury Hotel)

Super fun morning with the Brisbane City Sketchers in Queens Park Brisbane. Queens Gardens is a heritage-listed park located on a city block between George Street, Elizabeth Street and William Street in the Brisbane CBD. It was built from c. 1905 to 1990s It is soon to be transformed, with the Queens Wharf development happening. It is a bittersweet development.

Our historical buildings in this area are going to be re-purposed.. I am saddened that only the facades of the historical buildings are on the Heritage Register. The interior of these amazing buildings are fabulous too.


This is the Tower of Power dwarfing the historic buildings below.
Queen’s Wharf Road and William Street are two of the oldest streets in Brisbane. The two historic buildings in my drawing are the Immigration Depot (later to become the national trust House) The building was erected in 1865-1866 It was located adjacent to the Queen’s Wharf, which was the point of arrival for thousands of immigrants entering the new free colony between 1848 and 1897. Queen’sWharf was located in the area now known as the north bank of the Brisbane River.
and the Commissariat Store which was originally built by convict labour under the direction of Captain Logan as a permanent Commissariat Store for the Moreton Bay Penal Settlement. Presently, the restored and renovated building operates as the headquarters for the RHSQ, housing the museum



These statues are situated in the Queens gardens. The gardens were originally called the Executive Gardens for the Executive Building and later changed after the statue of Queen Victoria was erected. Queens Gardens is a heritage-listed park located on a city block between George Street, Elizabeth Street and William Street in the Brisbane CBD It was built from c. 1905 to 1990s

Arrow Brisbane Synagoggue

Wonderful morning this morning sketching the Brisbane Synagogue in Margaret Street
The Synagogue was designed by Arthur Morry and built from 1885 to 1886 by Arthur Midson.
The Brisbane Hebrew Congregation is the largest Jewish organisation in Queensland and its Synagogue is the oldest in Queensland.







I do wish I had taken a photo of this window.
