Canada Malting Silos sketch

As a follow-up to yesterday’s post, here is the final sketch from my Instagram live session with @artofalvin. It was so much fun to sketch and chat with him this morning, even though I was hardly awake and hadn’t had nearly enough coffee. If you’re interested in seeing the process, go to Alvin’s IGTV to watch. I sketched this one in my Etchr Perfect Sketchbook.

  1. That was great. I had a different photo for some reason, i sketched that view.. great silo building. I once worked on a crew in Iowa, in the summer, building one of those.. interesting process.. Eileen



    • Eileen, so glad you watched. For some reason, on my screen, the comments froze and I was afraid that if I touched anything, I would lose Alvin. So I have no idea who was watching or if anyone asked questions. I can believe you worked to build one of these. It must have been amazing. I guess you had no time to sketch it too.

    Using blue in the roadway. I would not think of that. Makes the painting much more lively

    It was a great way to start my day-just the incentive I needed to get some painting done myself. Loved the results of both pictures!


    • Denise, so glad you were watching. Like I just wrote to Eileen, I couldn’t see the comments because my scroll froze, so I have no idea who was watching or what they were asking. But glad you were there!

    I watched some of this Shari! Great to hear the two of you chatting and to watch you both paint. A much more civilised time of day here in the UK!


    • Hi Tony, I slept really poorly the night before this, so I have no idea how I even painted but it was so much fun. Alvin is a really sweet guy and it was nice to chat. I wish I would have know you were there!

    Good Morning dear friend Shari,

    Very beautiful sketch. The excellent color choice to suit to every point.



  6. I’m pretty sure I’ve seen that Silo before, is it near the Lacine Canal. Weird the little hut on top.
