Point Roberts Marina

Some boats out of the water for the winter. Giving the markers a try again. Got a little carried away with the green leaves, a long time yet before we see those. Point Roberts, WA, USA

the a la mode crowd

A third drawing from my day in the market at Granville Island, Vancouver BC. A la mode sells great pie and goodies. I saw a Greg Betza drawing which inspired me. Imitation is a form of flattery, right? Greg Betza can absolutely draw. Take a look -

Burger Stand

Another Granville Island food fair drawing, Vancouver BC. This vendor sells great food. Nicki, Cathy & Diana and I had a great time drawing here. I did the watercolor right there, I usually do it later at home. This is better. To my surprise no one came to peek over my shoulder.

a la mode

Had a wonderful day drawing with daughter Nicki, niece Cathy and friend Diana in a little food fair at Granville Island, Vancouver BC. A la mode sells great lemon pie. Nice and warm inside on a gray December day. We talked about organizing a proper Urban Sketchers Vancouver group. This may be a start.

Nitobe Bridge

A drawing from my trip with Dino Pai to Nitobe Gardens at UBC in Vancouver BC Canada. I didn't post this before as I didn't like it but time does change thinking. That is a little thumbnail in the upper left.

Robson & Homer Streets, Vancouver BC

The view from the coffee shop is always a challenge and always fun to draw. It is always a learning process.

Added Some Color

I went drawing with my niece Cathy to Van Dusen Gardens in Vancouver BC. A beautiful botanical garden built on property that once was a golf course. It is great in November so it will be spectacular in the spring. This drawing is of a sculpture by Gerhard Juchum called Fisher Hauling In The Net which is in the garden.
