Sketch-It

Plein-air pen and wash on paper

Terrasse Dufferin

Terrasse Dufferin is the large plaza along the Chateau Frontenac in Quebec City with spectacular views over part of the old City and the St. Laurens River; not surprising that it is always busy with visitors. I was sitting at the far end in the shade of a canopy to make a pen sketch that I finished today with some water colours.

It is amazing how many photographs are made, it is almost non-stop. Some tourists seem to practice individual and group poses, taking turns using their camera; not to mention thousands of selfies.

When I took some shots of a large container ship sailing by on the St. Laurens, somebody offered to make a picture with me in it. When I politely declined they seemed surprised and looked me over pitying this odd individual who records scenery only.
