Saturday Sketchout with the Brisbane USkers at Dockside

Saturday, six of us braved the overcast skies and occasional spit of rain and went sketching at Dockside. Urban Sketchers Brisbane

My first quick sketch while I was waiting for a friend at the Holman Street ferry.  In between sketching I was talking to visitors to the area about our wonderful city.

Sitting at the Medley Cafe Dockside with the group looking out over the river.

I used my watersoluble Derwent graphite for these three sketches

Sketching the group while they were sketching.
All these sketches were made in my Holcroft A5 225gsm sketchbook

Sketchout Saturday with the Brisbane USkers

We went to South bank today.  It was wonderful on the Promenade.  Nice breezes, and a good view where I was sitting of the New Government building.  1 Williams Street (The Tower of Power)  I am really enjoying the stages of development of this building.  It does fascinate me, watching it take shape.
We had loads of Chinese tourists stop and talk to us while we sketched, and I enjoyed that was well.

First Urban Sketchout for 2016!!!

The Brisbane Urban Sketchers met for our first sketchout of the year at the Collectors Cafe at the Brisbane Museum & Sciencentre.  It was a rainy day, so we hung around under cover.  Here are my two sketches of the day.

Looking across at the still, tallest building in Brisbane, the Meriton building.  The glass Pyramid is on the forecourt in front of the Collectors Cafe.

I moved up the stairs to the cafes seated area which is still under cover, and safe from the rain and sketched this view.

This is the Busway, taken from the top of the walkway that leads to the Museum and cafe.
