Cambridge Farmers Market, circa 1930’s

I sketched this market from a pamphlet I picked up when Alan Norsworthy and I sketched downtown Galt, Ontario, Canada, last week.

I wanted to practice using a water soluble ink brush with watercolour. I screwed up a sketch when I spritzed water on my drawing last week, not realizing the ink was not permanent.

Videos I watched showed that you can work with these inks…so here is my attempted to master this medium.

I used a Faber-Castell  Pitt artist pen, Sakura watercolour brush, Tombow water soluble brush and gouache.
