    All I can say is “WOW”! These sketches and the washes are spectacular. I learn every time I see your work.

    These are amazing, Marc. Just wonderful. Watercolor or ink? When I was young-grade school young-we would go to the Cleveland Museum of Art to draw. Wish I could join you in Montreal. Looking forward to seeing your work .

      Hey Judy – pencil drawing in the museum, and watercolor back home :) It’s a little softer than painting over ink line.

    So wonderful ! Only recently, I sketched at the Chicago Institute of art and enjoyed it – but that makes me appreciate yours much more. Your sketches are in a different league all together :) Thanks for sharing! Any tips for novices like me? Thanks in advance.
