Spend some time on Friday, sketching at Brentwood station. These block of colorful condo buildings at university city, are so prominent that they are visible from quiet a distance and help to orient you. I am curious why they are the only tall structures in this vicinity.

Took some time to do a sketch of the new Central library as I stood at city hall station. The New library building is so beautiful on the inside and outside! It has become the pride if the city!Looking to sketch this view again when the trees have leaves and there is no more snow on the streets!
This post is long overdue! Finally posting sketches from my trip to San Francisco. Sorry, I have not been posting frequently here. Trying to get back to sketching more and posting more often!

Winter that eluded us until February, is here with lots of snow and freeze! Unable to really spend a lot if time outside, I captured a few beautiful sunrises and sunsets from my cozy home. Here are a few winter sketches, from the past few weeks.
With warmer temperatures last week, I was able to go around the block and do some sketches of the neighborhood.
As I was running late from a meeting on Saturday morning, I was able to start Saturday’s YYC-Usk session only around noon. Since I was late, I was notified that our group had moved to Banker’s hall for sketching.
Unable to find any fellow sketchers and not wanting to renege on my plans to sketch, I settled down next to a cozy window that overlooked 8th Ave, to sketch the unique galleria tree sculptures. Due to lack of time, my sketch does not capture adequately, these beautiful sculptures. (I intend to do more detailed sketches of these iconic sculptures of Calgary, at some point in the future)
Later as I munched on my lunch, I completed another sketch at the food court, before I was done for the day.
Here are few of my sketches.
Taking a break from my usual commute sketching, to post some of my sketches from my first outing with the Calgary Urban Sketchers group. It was great to finally meet all the lovely people who have been working so hard to start and establish the Calgary urban sketchers group!
After brief introductions, we all quickly got to our spots to start sketching the West Kirby neighborhood. I started with a sketch of the West Kirby station, capturing the curved structure and glazing. After spending an hour on this sketch, I walk further west to get a good view of the Mewata Armoury. I tried to detail out the brick facade of the armoury as much as I could, constantly fighting the cold breeze. After spending 30 mins on the sketch and unable to work in the breeze, I decided to call it a day. I added watercolor wash to my sketches at home.
