Brisbane Painting & Drawing July Meetup – 3 of 3

Brisbane Painting and Drawing Meetup St George Square lion statue

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.

Brisbane Painting and Drawing July Meetup: 1 of 3

Brisbane Painting and Drawing Meetup St George Square horse soldier statue

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 🙂
