Yesterday I attended the Brisbane Painting and Drawing Meetup group for April’s gathering at GOMA to sketch The 8th Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art.

I think we had a brief hour and a half of sketching and a good social chit chat at the end in the GOMA caf√© ūüôā

Today was Septembers meetup for the Brisbane Painting and Drawing Group, and the venue was the awesome Walkabout Creek at Brisbane Forest Park.

This group is excellent to meet people with such variety of talent to learn and inspire from.

I photographed two of my illustrations from today; one of a cute wallaby which was admired for its picture book cuteness, and the back of the visitor centre working in some textures.

Life Drawing with Brisbane Painting and Drawing Group

Last month I joined the Brisbane Painting and Drawing Group which hold regular monthly drawing events which presented a great way to meet other artists and to enhance skills.

 

The group is run by the Courier Mail cartoonist Sean Leahy who is a great inspiration to watch as he draws.  It was really encouraging to see him eagerly flicking through my sketchbook giving praise.

 

Two events I have been to so far are the life drawing evenings.  A bit different to the traditional life drawing, as these feature local singers who sing a for an hour and a half as we draw them.  I kind of like the creative cycle it forms from musical creativity fuelling our drawing creativity which in turn fuels their singing.

 

The two singers were Hayley Wilson and Jessica Sarah.
