With the warm weather it has been great to get back outside with sketchbook in hand. Calgary has a wealth of highly articulated historic buildings and I get much satisfaction in capturing some of their details.
First Baptist Church on 13th Avenue and Fourth St. S.W. has a mix of red brick and carved sandstone. I sat across the street in Central Park. Sketch Alert! There is a nice outdoor coffee shop in the park.
When it was cold outside there was opportunity for people sketching in our weekly Calgarysketchbooker’s Meetup in Starbucks.
Something a little different!
The Dr. Carl Safran Centre is a beautiful sandstone building, built in 1908 as a high school. On the west side there is a park with lots of benches and stone topped tables which provide a comfortable place to sit and sketch.
We shall meet here on Saturday May 12 at 1:30 P.M. for our first sketch walk.
930 13th Avenue S.W – hope to see you there!
