The grounds of the Quebec Aquarium are great for a sketcher. Whoever designed them had esthetics in mind as well as the ability to accommodate families with kids running all over the place. And so it’s a fun place to do small landscape sketches. With winter looming in front of us, I’ve spent most of my aquarium time doing those kinds of sketches.
Claudette and I were at the aquarium this week (last week?). While waiting for it to open I quickly sketched a grouping of large rocks that sit near the entrance. I’m still trying to get a handle on drawing rocks.
Later I made this little sketch out the window of the cafeteria. I was drawing trees but more, I was playing with my Hero 578 “fude” pen. I still haven’t tapped the expressiveness of this pen and should use it a lot more.
But I spent most of my time drawing this scene. It took me the best part of two hours to complete it. This included a chat with the security guard, another with a grounds-keeper and a couple visitors stopped to comment. The weather was ideal, as were the social interactions.
