It’s been several weeks since I walked out of my house wearing my larger art bag. That was the day I met Brigitte, the new sketcher I mentioned in my last post. We met in the small park along St. Denis street within the walls of the old city of Quebec.
We were to meet at 10AM but Claudette and I arrived earlier, I think it was around 9:30. We both started sketching and I was well into a drawing when Brigitte arrived. When she did, we started talking about everything and anything and had a delightful conversation about her, about the sketching world in Quebec City, her house renovations and a bunch of other stuff. She’s really a delightful person but eventually we decided that maybe we should draw and so got back to it. By then, though, it was nearing lunch time, or at least coffee break time so we didn’t get much more sketching done.
I was starting to have my leg problems and when I got home my bag went on the shelf and the only thing I’ve done with it since was to remove my pen case, because all other materials are replicated on my desk and/or in my smaller bag. Yesterday, however, I decided to organize for what I optimistically view as my imminent return to street sketching.
And guess what I found? That partially complete sketch from weeks ago. It seems very unlikely that I’ll ever complete it so I thought I’d show you an ‘in progress” photo of it. Hope you like it.
