Finding time to sketchPosted: November 24, 2012
As my autumn teaching semester nears the end I find it harder and harder to make the time to sketch. And the painter in me gets more and more frustrated. All teachers can attest to the fact that preparation and grading can eat up huge chunks of time, especially near the end of term. Today all I had time to do was a little value sketch for a painting I hope to do soon. What I found interesting in this little scene was the chair half in the sun and half in the shade.
For Montreal Urban Sketchers, tomorrow will be our third group outing. We have an interesting day planned — morning sketching outdoors on the McGill Campus (dress for the cold!!) and afternoon drawing in the company of dinosaurs, taxidermy and assorted objects at the Redpath Museum. For more info have a look at the USK Montreal site. We love having new people join us and sketchers of all levels are welcome.
