Went to the Kris Kindle Market in Kitchener, Sunday. We grabbed some potato pancakes went inside city hall and sat and I sketched while munching away. This booth was selling knitted hats and wool.
This is part of the throwdown in Victoria Park today with Urban Sketchers Group. Everyone isn’t showing yet but what a great collection of art! Great subject matter!
Sketched the City Hall Clock Tower in Victoria park today with the Urban Sketchers Waterloo Region Group. Great turnout (23 of us) and a marvelous day it was!
This Clock Tower was placed in the park after being stored in the city yards for years, after the demolition of the old city hall.
This is what I worked from.
Out with Urban Sketchers Waterloo Region Group in this marvelous weather today in Victoria Park, Kitchener, Ontario. Sat down in the shade and sketched this formidable lady before meeting up with the other sketchers for our throwdown at The Boathouse.
I sketched this monument in a garden of sculptors in Lowville, Ont. today with the Urban Sketchers of Waterloo Region. The title of this piece was “Cocktail Hour”. I had the pleasure of meeting the artist, Walt Rickli and he explained to me the origin of that title. He had observed the shadow falling onto the circles at 5p.m., hence the cocktail hour. Makes perfect sense to me;-)
This is a sketch I did from the train from Ghent to Brugge. We stayed a week in the town of Ghent and then arranged a tour of Flanders Fields in Brugge….very interesting!
Whitemud Falls, Alta is about 100 km northeast of Fort McMurray,Alta. just 14 km from the Saskatchewan border. This is the falls we flew to and canoed out in 1983 and 84.
This painting was fairly large and was purchased by the Sudbury Hospital. These falls are on the Clearwater River which runs into the Athabasca River and then on to the Fraser River to the coast.
This was a popular route for fur traders and this river and falls were mentioned in Simon Frasers’ journals. Image !!…I stood where Simon Fraser stood!!! Wow!!
