Mount Royal Sketchcrawl

October 28, 2012

Here’s my sketchbook pages from today’s Sunday Sketching with the Montreal Urban Sketchers. We lucked out on weather. Just warm enough to stand about and sketch with plenty of coffee shop breaks in between. Next outing (Nov 25) will be in the Redpath Museum on McGill Campus.

In a weird way, I like how this cheap book I had bleeds through. I sort of enhanced that in the scanning process. It’s not something you’d use for a serious drawing, but for these Lamy and water-brush sketches the effect is kind of neat. I was traveling super light gear wise – so these are ink-washed with diet pepsi.

We had 15 people turn out to draw, including a couple from Ontario. So, that was extra neat. This is turning into a great way to meet artists in Montreal.

    Love these and the ink washes. Do you have several bottles of different diluted inks or do add some water to the brush and dilute as you go

      I do have a lot of little 5ml jars. So I bring a selection. They’re small enough you can have 5 colors in your pocket :)
