Pathetic Fallacy

From high school Shakespeare, pathetic fallacy occurs when the elements reflect the mood of the character…

I walked past the shuttered General Electric plant in Peterborough just as a storm approached. GE bought the 100 year old company that employed me for 28 years (Baker Hughes), stripped the cash and put the remainder up for sale. A dark subject to sketch; I expect there are restless ghosts on the shop floor…

Sketching on the fly…

Just spent a couple of weeks in Peterborough and the Kawarthas. A ton of great old buildings and streetscapes; we could have filled six months worth of meetings and not covered it all…

For the first time I tried some twenty minute sketches; I have seen a number of our group doing them, but I’ve never had the courage. These were dashed off in a few minutes, then quickly coloured later. Really challenging with strange shapes and perspectives-some winners and losers!
