What a great 2015 year for Toronto Urban Sketchers!
I am very happy to be part of such a wonderful group of sketchers!!!!
I just wanted to share my final challenge for the year. I challenged myself to a night sketch (in the cold)! It was at one of my favourite places to sketch – Evergreen Brick Works – with the music and sounds of their evening play called “Tails from the City”.
I tried to capture the string of seasonal lights that was decorating the entrance plaza. One of the hardest things was that I could not see the colours that I was applying to my sketch because it was to dark. I therefore took some time at home to fix up my values. I will have to find a place with more light or bring a flashlight with me the next time.
Here are some of my favourite Christmas ornaments decorating our family tree this year.
I always wanted to try out the watercolour iridescent medium….I found the right place to add and play with it on the gingerbread house.
