Ever notice that when things come as a surprise they’re just a bit better? We’re experiencing some late fall weather that’s been really great and it’s extended my outdoor sketching season. This surprise has been sweetened even more by my boss and true love (some call her my wife) wanting to sketch with me. Life is great.
We found ourselves on Ile d’Orleans, the island I’ve mentioned in recent posts and we were back in the park I discussed here. Chantal wanted to sketch the large hotel building and I sat down to sketch an old house on that sits on a hill in the park.
When I finished up I went looking for Chantal and found her working away on her sketch. Not wanting to interrupt her, I sat down and started doodling details of the building she was drawing. I need to do this more often cuz it’s fun… lots of fun. I probably could have organized them better on the page but I gave that no thought as I just kept scibbling until the pages were full. You might want to click on the graphic to enlarge it a bit. Do you ever do this?
