New Pens!!!!!

I recently purchased two new pens from Ebay. I love them!  The seller is a reputable one, and I will put his link below for you.

I bought  Hero Running Horses black with calligraphy nib and white with a fine nib.  I still want to buy a red one with a medium nib, and spare nibs.  These pens draw like a dream..  I love the weight of them, they feel well balanced in my hand, and the flow of ink is great.  They are inexpensive, and the best pen purchase I have made to date.

Sketching at Woolloongabba Village with friends.

In the 1900s, the Gabba was best known for the Brisbane Cricket Ground and the landmark Moreton Rubber Building. Fast forward to today and the heritage-listed buildings in the Gabba Village high street have come alive with sophisticated restaurants, bars and cafes, homewares, retro boutiques, antique centres, art galleries and designer and vintage retailers.

44th Worldwide Sketchcrawl - Brisbane 12-07-14

The Brisbane Sketchcrawl Group sketch Roma Street Parklands  It was a fun day.

I arrived way to early as I do

Didn't get the sketch finished as they got up and walked away, don't think they were too happy either.  20 minute wait for food and it's substandard.  Service is really bad at the Groove Train King George Square.

Yay Coffee Hit right next door opened.  I sat there to wait for the other members to show up.  Coffee Hit is run by the same company, but they have far better service, better food, and the staff are absolutely delightful.

We moved onto Roma Street Parklands and sketched at the Lake Precinct.  Here we met an Urban Sketcher from Sydney Fang Xu.  He is a lovey man and an amazing artist.  I have been following his work for a long time.  He sketched with us for the rest of the day.

Last stop was in Colin Campbell Place  We all sketched on paper cups, just for fun.

It was a fun day...

Sketching with the Brisbane Urban Sketchers at The Old Museum

The Old Museum was originally called the Exhibition Building and Concert Hall. It was built in 1891 for the Queensland National Agricultural and Industrial Association after Brisbane's first exhibition building, which had occupied the land, was destroyed by fire on 13 June 1888.

McWhirters Building in Fortitude Valley

The building is the legacy of Scotsman James McWhirter, one of Brisbane’s leading retailers of the late 19th and early 20th century. Upon his arrival in Brisbane (for the second time) in 1884 he was employed by Brisbane’s other retail mogul, the Irish catholic TC Beirne, until breaking out on his own in 1896 and becoming a rival.  
Built 1930-31 it is art deco in style, featuring a commanding facade that was designed by the Brisbane architectural firm of T.R. Hall and L.B. Phillips, who also designed the Brisbane City Hall
