What’s In The News Sketching – Quebec City Hall

I was still resurrecting our house from the recent construction and so couldn’t get out sketching, but I was desperate to do something other than quick doodles.  I was reading the newspaper over lunch when I came across a picture of the top of our city hall and decided to sketch it.

I don’t sketch from photos and other than quick doodles, I rarely sketch at home, so this was…what’s the word… err… uhm… oh yeah… DIFFERENT.  I was sitting at our kitchen table, in a real chair, with paper resting on a hard surface.  What a difference that makes.  It’s a lot easier to draw this way than perched on my tripod stool on location.  I can’t say its as much fun but maybe I should do it more often.  Anyways, here’s the top of Quebec City’s seat of government.  Tomorrow I’m heading to the museum.

    There’s a lot to be said for a comfy chair and table, good light and climate control. Yet somehow it’s never as much fun as shivering or sweating, swatting flies and grabbing your pages in the wind. Sigh.
