A Pleasant Morning at Connaught Park

2019 June 15

Arrived early and grabbed a coffee.  I did two sketches.  Started a 20 minute sketch before the others arrived.  This statue is a replica of a soapstone carving, which is originally 14 cm tall.  This statue is part of the Civic Art Collection.


In my second sketch I am playing around with preparing my support prior to the event.  I used watercolor and some gesso.  I applied using a combination of brush, knife and stamping.  I like how it allows me to relax, and I can just concentrate on the drawing.   I added thicker pen at home and some marker for shadows.  I also added plant material to the planter, poor thing only has a couple of weeds 😦

  1. Thank you Lucie. Hope you are keeping up your class with Mark. I used a piece of non slip material, like you put under something so does not slide around. Painted some watercolor on it and pressed it down.
