I saw this in May on our trip to the UK. Drew it from a photo, so not strictly according to the Urban Sketch rules of actually drawing on site. Couldn't resist doing the drawing.

False Creek, Vancouver

Looking from Granville Island across False Creek to the condos in Yaletown, Vancouver. That is a small ferry that takes people across the water. Following my usual policy of rushing out the door, jumping on my horse and riding off in all directions, I am drawing with a marker (today).

Langley Townhouses

Langley BC has gone from rural to pretty urban in recent years. Sat in a coffee shop and drew these townhouses with my neat new pen, a Sakura SumoGrip II gel 05, waterproof ink etc. Maybe I draw just so I can cruise the art supply stores.
