Urban Sketches: A Corner in St. Anne

I hope you had a pleasant Labor Day weekend. I know I did. : ) I’m posting a few sketches I did the last few weeks, just so they see the light of day. Below is from a moment I sat in front of a depanneur (convenience store) in Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue and drew the adjacent corner.

The photo below shows the sketch and corner:

I included a photo (below) of my art supplies. That paint set is probably several decades old at least. It came to me from my grandmother after she passed in the early 90’s. And I remember seeing them in a drawer at her home for many years before that. I like the sentimental aspect of using them. I can remember her fondly while I paint. I carry the set and water in a backpack, which I drag around with me when I go on outings. I also have books and other stuff in there, just in case I want to simply sit and read instead.

If you would like to see my sketchers and sketchblogs, check out the Urban Sketchers site. There are lists of people from all over the world who are being sketchers of their environments.
