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.

Port Moody

Port Moody BC Canada has a new high rise condo village. Retail stores on the ground floor, residences above. Windows everywhere. A very convenient place to live and shop.
