Sketching in Cambridge (Galt)

Joined Alan today to sketch old buildings in Cambridge (Galt). Met up at the Melville Cafe at 9:30 and got some hot drinks because it was COLD. But in spite of the cold we persevered and stood in the entrance ways of stores to get out of the wind and sketched for 4 hours.

I’m trying to loosen up my drawing and to be quicker like Alan, but I still get bogged down with detail.

I was really pleased with the one sketch I did with blue ink of the old town hall. Directly went to ink…no pre drawing with pencil and it worked…until I added water. I forgot the ink was water soluble. Interesting results.
