Canada Day - July 1, 2009

- 5:40pm

Went down to Granville Island today to pick up sketching supplies at the Opus store and had a late lunch at the Granville Island Hotel. Sat in the sun outside for a while just watching people go by. Lot and lots of people.

Well I just got back home at 5:20pm and could wait no longer to christen one of the new sketchbooks. I haven't done any sketching for quite a while so am rusty. Anyway as a quick ten minute exercise I did the above sketch of myself. Okay anyone who knows me can have a good laugh... hey it takes practice :-)

Actually, with my red shirt on I kind of look like a chubby but ill-fated "Red Shirt" from the original Star Trek TV show.

Okay, just another quick sketch this evening from the seawall outside.

Anyway, new pencils, new sketch books... armed and dangerous.... Cyberdave
