My daughter was home for Christmas and she asked if she could have one of my sketches to hang in her apartment. Since I do my drawing in sketchbooks, granting her request was difficult, so I decided to do a drawing for her on Fabriano Artistico cold-press paper. It’s really a pleasure to have unlimited time and to work at a table and without needing to juggle the tools as I sit on a tripod stool. I drew one of my favorite scenes in Quebec City and here is the result.
This project is something of a landmark for me as well. It’s the first time I’ve ever matted one of my drawings. Heck, it’s the first time I’ve ever cut a mat. It was fun. It improved the look of the drawing. I might do it again. She was happy with it. I hope you do too.
