Saturday Sketchout - Dockside Brisbane Qld

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

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

Still sitting in the Medley cafe sketching the Story bridge behind me.

Sitting on Dockside walkway sketching the apartment buildings.
 These two sketchers were made in my A4 Holcroft 225gsm Sketchbook Lamy pen Noodlers black ink, and Artline 210 0.6 marker

Sketching at South Bank Brisbane Qld.

What a fun morning it was. Great sketching and great conversation.  I do enjoy going out with the Brisbane Urban Sketchers.
It was lovely down on the river, not to hot.  I got one sketch done, in my Fabriano Venezia Sketchbook - High key this time.

I sketched with my 2B mechanical pencil

Number 1 Williams Street (The Tower of Power) fascinates me.  I am having a blast sketching her as she grows!

First sketch 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.

Taken from the Collectors Cafe

The fog over the city was magical.  I took this photo from the walkway as soon as I got off the elevator that brought me up from the busway below.
