Short Cruise Sketching

After a week of frightfully cold weather, things warmed up in Quebec City.  In fact, we’re experiencing weather that’s more like it should have been in mid-August, when we were all wondering when summer was going to start.

Given the date, and given that the trees measure day length very well and are starting to look like autumn, I’m taking advantage of every one of these warm, sunny days.  Late last week I went for a really long walk and mid-walk I climbed onto the ferry that crosses the St. Lawrence between Quebec City and Levis just to get out on the water.

I headed for the top deck so I could sit outside, catch some rays and experience the high seas, or at least my version of it.  Below me was this scene and, of course, I had to sketch it.  It was the only sketch I did that day but it was a glorious day.

    Sounds like you had a wonderful day Larry. I went on a little trip across lake Michigan once and got Sea Sick. Great sketch.

    • I suspect I might get sick crossing Lake Michigan as well, Lynne. As the trip across the St. Lawrence at Quebec City takes only a few minutes (it’s the narrowest part of the St. Lawrence), sickness is not a problem. I generally do a couple round trips just to enjoy the boat ride 🙂
