Sketch-It

Plein-air pen and wash on paper

Vancouver

We visited Vancouver for two days and got rained out over there instead of at home in Nanaimo. It is nevertheless an interesting change of scenery with a skyline of tall buildings that seem to be popping up everywhere like mushrooms with interesting shapes and detailing. It is also a town with too many people who appear to be in a rush all the time, particularly when driving a car. Parking your vehicle is somewhat of a challenge or a huge expense or both.

I tried to make a sketch on Granville Island, but could not focus; too cold. Instead I checked out a variety of baking products at the market.

The second day I parked the car in Kitsilano’s residential area and sketched this back lane scene along Arbutus Street  and Whyte Avenue, using the front seat of the car as a studio.
