This last weeks work - Plein air painting and Sketching.


Plein air painting at Lota Lookout Lota with the Brisbane Plein Air Painters Group
Sketching at WINDMILL TOWER at Wickham Terrace Spring Hill, with the Brisbane Urban Sketchers

The Old Windmill is a  heritage-listed tower located in Wickham Park, on Wickham Terrace in Spring Hill, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. It is the oldest surviving building in Queensland.
It was built in 1828 during colonial times by convicts for grinding grains, such as wheat and maize. The Old Windmill originally had wind-powered sails. The grinding of the grains was done by treadmill from October, 1828, with the wind-powered sails being used from December, 1828. The treadmill was dismantled in 1842 when the convict settlement was closed.

CURATORS COTTAGE City Botanic gardens
Built in 1905, for curator Walter Hill, it is on the heritage register.  It is now the Garden Club Café, and a fabulous place to have a coffee and a snack..


  1. You certainly had a good time with all this sketching. Lovely to see the variety of your work.

    1. Thanks Ann, yes I sure do get around. I am enjoying sketching at the moment. Wish I had a bit more time for painting though. :)
