This morning the weather was perfect for a walk and some sketching.
I ended up on a bench along the waterfront with my back to the sun. Problem was that the shadow cast by my hand on the paper made it difficult to see my lines, as I was wearing sunglasses.
Some editing indoors did not improve the overall appearance.
I will go back here some time in the future to make another sketch, as I like this building. It was designed by Gerry Ellins, a local Architect who is still around, for the owners of the Madill forestry company, which is no longer existing in Nanaimo.
Around the year 1998, I was hired by Mr. Chuck Madill to investigate and make recommendations for upgrades and repairs to mitigate water ingress problems. At that time, I was an employee of an engineering company, which is also no longer operating. However, this building is still a prominent and attractive looking landmark close to downtown overlooking Newcastle Island and the channel.
