The Bastion is one of several buildings in Nanaimo, that I  keep coming back too for another sketch.

This time I paid some attention to draw the curved shape of the stairs. When I was almost finished some people actually stood there and sat down at that end for a few minutes, as if they were modelling for me.

There may be other vantage points for sketching this building, however one has to endure busy traffic from the street or a parking lot. The viewpoint shown here is from the harbour front Plaza.
