Here in Quebec City we’re still waiting for the opportunity to get out of our igloos so we can sketch outside. Until the snow starts melting, however, we get together at someone’s house and sketch.
A favorite in that regard is Yvan’s place because he has a great studio that’s filled with an artist’s version of a cabinet of curiosities so there’s lots of stuff to draw. When several of us gathered there I chose to draw plaster casts of hands. I had a lot of fun with these but I made the mistake of using a water-based felt pen to shade them. I know lots of people love felt markers but I can’t understand why. Whenever I use one the results are streaky and splotchy.
