Sketching the old Champion Hotel at the corner of Gertrude and Brunswick Streets, Fitzroy this morning before lunch at the Workers Club. @diannecolk was capturing some of the people crossing the road, including a woman walking her dog in matching bright yellow puffer jackets! A couple of guys in hi viz crossed several times, and people waiting for the lights stopped to check out the row of sketchers - @auntyfrank @diannecolk @pixelationstudios and Trish all focused on this iconic building. #helendrawsbrunswickstreet #brunswickstreetsketchography #usk #urbansketchers #melbourneurbansketchers #urbansketchersaustralia #brunswickstreet #brunswickstreetfitzroy #archisketch #architecturesketch #fitzroy #cityofyarra

Lunch at Elektra in Brunswick Street, Fitzroy today with the Tuesday sketching clan. I was soo cold outside so happy to clamp my frozen fingers around a nice warm cup of Himalayan Chai before getting stuck into my crushed avo. So good and highly entertaining conversation :) #helendrawsbrunswickstreet #brunswickstreetsketchography #melbournecafe #cafesketch #lunchsketch #fitzroy #brunswickstreet #bockingford #urbansketchers #usk #melbourneurbansketchers

I was sketching this stunning building in Brunswick Street, Fitzroy when a passer by pointed out the pigeons being fed on the roof. The next person to stop told me that all the grey ones were called Nigel. From there, Ros shared photo portraits about all the pigeons and their wonderful names - Thick Kevin, Ron and Thérèse, George III (and IV), Andy Stankovich, Speckled Jim, Priscilla and Elvis. If I hadn't been sitting there drawing on location I would never have known. You can read more of the story on my blog here - https://helenwildingart.com/sketching-pigeons-black-cat-brunswick-street/  Thank you Roslynne!! PS - the final prints will be on exhibit @blackcatfitzroy for two weeks from 4pm Sunday 4 July 2021 #helendrawsbrunswickstreet #brunswickstreetsketchography #pigeons #feedingpigeons #brunswickstreet #brunswickstreetfitzroy #cityofyarra #victorianarchitecture #archsketch #architecturesketch #melbournearchitecture #sketching #watercolour

I'm super excited and feeling oh so fortunate! My husband Stephen has just painted our hallway and set up a gallery system for me! These are most (but not quite all) of the prints I'll be exhibiting at the Black Cat, 252 Brunswick Street, Fitzroy for two weeks from Sunday 4 July at 4pm. If you're in the neighbourhood I hope you drop by! #helendrawsbrunswickstreet #brunswickstreetsketchography #brunswickstreet #fitzroy #cityofyarra #brunswickstreetfitzroy #exhibition @blackcatfitzroy #artprints #architecturesketch #illustrations #archisketch #victorianarchitecture #melbournearchitecture
