We made a quick sketching trip across the St. Lawrence River, back to Maison Alphonse-Dejardins last week. With the holidays rushing towards us I entirely forgot to write about it so here’s the abridged version.
We went. We were there. We had fun. I drew a cabinet hanging on the kitchen wall, mostly because of all the goodies hanging from it. I shot this photo of sketch and cabinet as I waited for the first bit of paint to dry. Once dry, I added more color and this was the result. I mucked up the shadows but nobody’s perfect 🙂 Done in a Stillman & Birn Beta (8×10) softcover. I’ve fallen in love with these sketchbooks. Same great paper as my hardcover books but at almost half the weight.
I thought I’d throw in this small sketch I did of one of the lights in the house. I did it quickly a few weeks ago while waiting for others to finish up.
It was great to get out sketching on location again, in spite of the snow and the cold. I suspect I’ll be returning to Maison Alphonse-Dejardins this winter.
