More than anything, this post is an X on the calendar to indicate when it got too cold to sketch outdoors in Quebec City. It’s snowing these days and not very friendly to street sketchers, particularly an Arizona-bred sketcher who hates being cold.
I take the bus everywhere and our system is great because I can sit at home and know exactly when the bus will get to my stop which means I don’t have to stand in the cold. But, for reasons I can’t explain, the other day I headed to the bus stop without checking my app and sure enough, just as I arrived, the bus was pulling away.
That meant I had ten minutes of standing around. As luck would have it there was a small bulldozer sitting on the corner of the street so I decided to draw it. I did this quick sketch of it and nearly finished when the bus came along.
