I have been trying to sketch more these days, both at home and on the road. These sketches are from the last couple of weeks–stretching my grasp of perspective and pushing myself to add more colour and depth. The sketch below was the hardest as I was angled above my beloved train station. I spent so much time getting the angle that I had no time for colour even though the train was 25 minutes late! The notes on the page make the rest clear enough–I wondered about leaving them and decided it was fine to record publicly the sad events of last week and the wonderful restorative power of Mystical Landscapes at the AGO.
Most of these were done from inside–but the last one, in Guelph, was done sitting outdoors at a cafe–in mid November!
