During the clipper

It hasn’t been a great winter for car sketching (too cold, too snowy) but today seemed promising. Fed up of drawing objects plunked on my kitchen counter, I was hoping to get some sort of urban sketching done before the snow fell but it came down so fast and was so heavy that I had to take shelter in a Starbucks. Apparently this type of snow event is called an Alberta Clipper. Isn’t that a great name for a snow storm?

Dim sum is on the menu for tomorrow’s Urban Sketchers Montreal monthly meeting. Last year we had a great time although I had some difficulties balancing chopsticks and paintbrush. I have some strategies for surviving tomorrow’s event. Everyone is welcome. No skill level required for eating or drawing. Details here.

  2. As I hang out for a cooler night of say 16 degrees you are enduring an Albeta Clipper. It is a great name for a storm. And your drawings are beautiful and expressive. I love the way you’ve captured their quiet moment over a coffee.

    I live in Alberta and the Alberta Clipper is a new one on me. Love these studies.
