Sketch Walk #1

Finally, the weather settled down and we were able to get out on a Sketch Walk. Six of us gathered around the Dr, Carl Safran Center downtown in the Beltine. This 100+ year old beauty was certainly a challenge to sketch in the time we spent there but was worth the effort.

There were indeed six or us, but hey, someone had to take the photo, and the selfie I took with all six of us showing was less than adequate. I’m not used to taking photos in bright sunshine. For the next Sketch Walk, stay tuned and keep checking the events page.

 

 

In the Mountains

I the centre of Banff, where I am fortunate enough to go for a conference every year stands St. Paul’s, a lovely little church in the heart of this tourist Mecca. It’s appearance in the sketch doesn’t show the reality of its location, but it does represent the way it looks from across the street where I was standing, on the sidewalk outside some to the busiest shops in Banff, not to mention the double doors into the food venues, from which spill out hundreds of tourists every minute or so.

I meanged to get a rough sketch done without being trampled and with the help of a photo, added some of the details and colours when I was back in the hotel.D47A9339-4E6B-4281-9FA2-912F9E5A9723
