My third picture from Sundays Painting and Drawing Meetup Group in Brisbane was of the face of a lion statue in King George Square. I just wanted to capture the face on one page. The eyes proved a challenge as there was quite a lot going on with light and shape to work out. It was even more fitting that the Winter Festival was playing music from The Lion King in the background haha.
Here’s my second sketch from yesterdays Brisbane Painting and Drawing Meetup group. It was a of the awesome sculpture half way up City Hall. Lots of details and light to take into consideration.
Today was the July Meetup for the Brisbane Painting and Drawing group and it was held at King George Sq in the City.
As I was waiting for others to arrive I drew this picture of one of the soldiers on horseback statue. Normally I am quickly drawing people and animals as they pass me by, so it was nice to concentrate on a stationary object and put a little bit more time into it…
Ill post the next two pictures on Monday and Tuesday so please come back to have a look. And please also come along to the next meetup in August 🙂
Tomorrow is the next meetup for the Brisbane Painting and Drawing group. I’m the organiser for this month and have decided to hold it at King George Square so we can sketch away at the Winter Festival of all the ice skaters and a touch of winter in sunny Brisbane!

Ace Comics June Meetup
On Saturday I joined the Ace Comics drawing group in Annerley. This was the first time I went to this and was great to meet other illustrators, including people I’d met before at expos.
I drew two pages. One included Ringo the Ringtail Possum and other characters of mine, but after we ordered pizza for lunch, I soon got in to a turtles mode and created the Australian version – Teenage Mutant Ninja Long Necked Turtles!!
Drawing this weekend? You bet!
Here’s where it is all happening:
Saturday – Drawing group at Ace Comics in Annerley (Click here for Facebook event page)
Sunday – Painting and Drawing Meetup at GOMA (Click here for Meetup Page)
See you there!!
Brisbane Painting & Drawing Meetup – May @ Northshore Harbour
In May, the Brisbane Painting and Drawing Meetup group met at Northshore Harbour – it was a lovely day with lovely views across the Brisbane River. We all stayed in the same spot so was great to view everyone’s art as they progressed through the morning. It is so inspirational seeing the variety and quality of what others were creating. It took me a little while to get going but I then opted for a comic style approach documenting things as they happened, from me arriving by City Cat, having our coffees and seeing dogs walking by.
The next meetup is on Sunday at GOMA – for more information please see the meetup group page: https://www.meetup.com/Brisbane-Painting-Drawing-Meetup/
Brisbane Painting & Drawing Meetup Group
In April, I organised the Brisbane Painting and Drawing Meetup Group and chose to hold it at Southbank. There’s such great views of the city from Southbank and so can really get stuck into drawing a landscape full of skyscrapers or people meandering by.
Afterwards we all had lunch together and is greatly inspiring learning about other peoples techniques and to see their artworks from the day. As my sketchbooks are normally full of animal sketches it was quite nice to get stuck into the Brisbane skyline.
The next meetup is on Sunday at Goma and to sign up or for more information please visit the Meetup page: https://www.meetup.com/Brisbane-Painting-Drawing-Meetup/
