Greenhouse greensPosted: January 25, 2015
There was a crowd at Sunday sketching with USk Montreal today, possibly the biggest ever (I think I say that every month so I guess we must be growing.) It’s hard to refuse the offer to sketch in a humid greenhouse on a brutally cold day. Sunlit, filled with tropical vegetation, fragrant with the scent of exotic flowers… it was like a mini-vacation in our own city. I sketched a row of pots near the window, and drew most of it with a contour pencil line, paying careful attention to the negative shapes of the leaves and then trying to vary the greens from warm to cool and blue to yellow in the vegetation.
