Moving in

It’s that time in the season when I start looking for indoor locations to sketch. The greenhouse in Westmount is always a good spot because there are café tables and chairs among the plants, and even though they usually need to be dried off, they provide a good place to set up. If you close your eyes — in that humid environment, filled with the sound of dripping water and the scent of warm vegetation — you might imagine yourself in a tropical setting. That also means that it takes forever for a wash to lose its sheen, so come prepared to spend a bit of time and smell the roses while your paper dries.

    With all those green shapes it is amazing you didn’t get lost. But it all comes together and looks fabulous!

  2. I enjoy your beautiful sketches! Wondering what your basic paint choices are.

    Love the dark diamond shapes where the leaves overlap
