May 2017 Report

May was an incredibly busy month and I am only just now realizing that I have not blogged. I have been doing a LOT of life drawing and I organized two urban sketching events (see my tweets below).

I also finished another sketch for The Wrench (Ottawas only street newspaper for the homeless) and continued with my sketchbook experiments.

June, July and August are all busy too but I will put more effort into regular blog post updates.

Below, I have added some of my tweets and sketches from the month of May 2017.

Life Drawing

I have been absolutely loving the multiple opportunities for life drawing in Ottawa this spring: The Atomic Rooster , Atelier Denu (Thursday evenings) and the Art House Cafe (Tuesday Evenings)

Urban Sketching

I organized two more urban sketching events in May. The Experimental Farm (May 13) and the Great Glebe Garage Sale (May 27)

I did this sketch outside in the rain. Worth it though because the silos have changed.

And, as usual, there has been plenty of practice work and studies in my various sketchbooks. I do hope to complete some final pieces this summer for my new website launch. Stay tuned!
