I do a lot of sketching and painting in watercolour in short time frames with the Ottawa Urban Sketching group (see my blog here: http://ottawaurbansketchers.blogspot.com/) but I have NOT undertaken quick studies in acrylic around Ottawa but I intend to start in June.
Return of My "One-Hour Bike-n-Sketch"
My old, unsophisticated bicycle that I bought three years ago for $60 at re-Cycles on Bronson Ave. in Ottawa is still in service and has been out and about to do some of my One-Hour Bike-n-Sketches.

I'm still working with my limited three-colour (plus white) Holbein acrylic palette (that I love so much) and this, I think would work extremely well for my "One-Hour Bike-n-Sketches" by minimizing what I will have to carry on my bike.
