Thursday Sketchers At The Museum

Our small group of “Thursday sketchers,” met at the Musee de La Civilisation.  I put the name in quotes because there’s nothing formal about us except that we meet at the museum on Thursdays.  Not surprisingly, we were there on Thursday (grin).

We scattered around the Quebec exhibition, which is part of the permanent collection, they’re planning on shutting it down for reorganision ‘real soon.’ Nothing motivates sketchers more than being told they weren’t going to lose access to something and so it went that day.

I’d made a short list of things I wanted to sketch before this happened so I set to work, not wanting to spend too much time on any one subject.  It was a great day and we had a lot of fun together.

    I like the background washes you put on the top two. Did you do that before beginning the drawing? Or after?

    • Yes. One of the really nice things about working on single sheets is that I can carry sheets with different washes and select which one I want for a particular sketch. I’m just starting to experiment with this. — Larry
