Heading Towards Autumn As A Sketcher

This time of year is crazy for me.  It’s entirely self-inflicted, though our orbiting world has some play in the matter.  You see, we’re hurtling towards the Autumnal Equinox.  Now, if you live in Arizona this probably means nothing to you but if you’re a sketcher, living in Quebec City, it means everything.

The Autumnal Equinox means my days as a street sketcher are numbered because it will soon be too cold to sketch outdoors.  It’s leaning that way already.  And so, each year, without intention, I become frantic to “get out there and sketch.”  I can’t help myself.  There are also the “We gotta go _fill in the blank_ before it gets too cold to do so” events and this adds short trips to hither and yon in an attempt to keep up with an Earth that’s flying along at 108,000 km/h.  How’s a guy to keep up?

So, we’ve been day-tripping and I’ve been sketching and the days have become so full that I don’t have any time to even scan my sketches, let alone write blog posts about them.

So I apologize for my lack of presentation but rest assured, I’ll make up for it as things slow down a bit.  In the meantime, here’s a rather quick sketch I did of a cute little storage building (not sure of its orignal purpose) that lives in the Parc des governors in Quebec City.
