Plein-air pen and wash on paper

More of Quebec City


The wifi in our hotel was not working for a day, so these sketches are from yesterday and today. One day I hope to get down to rendering these pen sketches with water colours.

This must be one of the most fascinating cities in Canada for historic buildings and scenery. I could spend a lifetime here sketching if it was not for the rain and the low temperatures. However, the hospitality and the restaurants more than make up for the weather conditions.

  1. Incredible detail in your sketches John.

  2. These are really good. I love Quebec. I live about an hour and a half away from the city. I’m trying to get back into drawing with pen. Slow going, but I’m enjoying it.
