Picnic Sketching At Berthier, Quebec

Last weekend, at the end of September, we had a couple of gorgeous, July-like days.  Temps were near 80F, the sun was shining and just a hint of breeze.  Ever since I spent the day with a group of sketchers at the marina/park at Berthier, Quebec, I’ve wanted to take my wife there for a picnic.  She enjoys sitting by the St. Lawrence and Berthier is the ideal place.

When we arrived we did the tour of the place and then sat down on a bench at the beginning of the quay and both of us got out our sketchbooks.  Yep…that’s right.  My wife has decided to do some location sketching.  Larry was thrilled!!!!

We breathed the fresh air, enjoyed the sunshine, and we sketched.  It was so much fun.  Then it was time for lunch.  We talked about sketching as we ate.  Have I mentioned that Larry was thrilled?  What a day… what a day.

    How excellent to be sketching with your spouse! All your talk about sketching probably finally infected her! 🙂

    • Yep, it’s pretty special. Our daughter just left for university so maybe she feels she’s got time for it now. There was a time, long before I started sketching, that she was doing art so I’m glad to see her getting back to it.
