This sketch was done with a ballpoint pen. The lady was a perfect model: she barely moved during my sketching. Maybe she was tired of pulling her cart uphill from the big grocery store half a mile away.
10 min walk to the park + 40 min sketch + 10 min walk back home. Baby slept all the way. Lady was still there when I left.

The 36th edition of the SketchCrawl took place on Sat, July 14th and Montrealers gathered at the Atwater Market to sketch together. The Lachine Canal runs behind the market, where this first sketch was done. In the background, a condo & loft complex build out of reconverted industrial buildings. They have great living spaces with high ceilings, wide windows and great views of the canal.

Riviera Maya, a set on Flickr.
Back from a one week vacation to the Riviera Maya, in Mexico. I was dying to dive head first in the turquoise waters nearby the Tulum archeological site and got my wish. I am so grateful that I was granted the opportunity to go back to one of the most beautiful places on Earth. I wish there had been more time for sketching... To my surprise, back at the hotel, there was a small temple at the hotel beach. It is a little construction known as "el nicho" which is very similar to the God of the Winds Temple at Tulum. It stands on a large rock in the middle of a small bay and there are many palapas nearby to comfortably sit and draw.

Our neighborhood was built in the 50's. There are detached and semi-detached single-family houses lined by mature silver maple trees.
A quiet afternoon, cold and sunny. I like the way the shadow of the tree branches falls on the wall of this house.

2011 has been a busy year with the arrival, in January, of my youngest daughter. We are close to celebrating her first birthday, and before I start planning about the cake I carved out some time to update the blog and flickr. So here they are!
