You are such an active sketcher. I wish I was spending time in Brisbane during my upcoming trip to Australia. It would have been fun to sketch with you.

Bakery Lane Fortitude Valley

I had a lovely morning with the Brisbane City Sketchers, in Bakery Lane, listening to Jazz taking in all the amazing aromas from the eateries in the Lane, and the ambiance. Bakery Lane is named after the bakery that operated here in days gone by.
Brisbane lane-ways became derelict places and dangerous, so the Brisbane City Council devised a plan to clean them up. There are eight that i know of now that are fabulous places to go for boutique shopping and awesome food.








Sketched in my handmade 7.5 x 8 inch sketchbook. Loving Saunders Waterford paper. Lamy pen and watercolour








Pick the artists

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

I love these JJ. How smart of your local government to reclaim these spaces and how clever of your group to choose them for your lovely sketches!

Great sketch of the lane! It is a great idea to clean them up and make them great places for people to congregate.

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

I always enjoy your urban sketches and accompanying photos. Your little bursts of history and observation just cement things for me. I love the armour in particular. It kind of sits as a little change of pace from the architecture, but also weaves in that historial touch.

The next time I happen to sketch something, while out and about, that may have some historical reference that I can realistically find out about, I'll make a point of looking into things and enjoying that experience. I'm often reading about history, but never really the history of... you know, that building just round the corner.

So yes, more of that, please. It's always interesting. I'll endeavour to throw some historical notes into my own scribbles where appropriate. Think of it as the Laudesan Effect!
