“Love Your City” Event

Leave a comment

The Maffeo Sutton Park along the waterfront in Nanaimo is used throughout the summer for festive events. I arrived at “Love Your City” by chance when riding my bike along the waterfront. It was organized by religious groups, who presented a band and many interesting activities for families complimented with snacks and refreshments. I settled down in the shade and made this sketch while watching people and listening to the music.

Tents are one of my favourite subjects. In this case they appeared to have been randomly distributed between the trees to set up a stage with actors for me to make this sketch.

Thanks to the Ocean Side Church, it appears that many people had an enjoyable afternoon.
