In Montreal we’ve had such a miserable, rainy June but the sun finally came out today just in time for the monthly outing of our Urban Sketchers group. We have been trying, without much luck, to get to the mountain to sketch the tamtam on a Sunday and it was finally nice enough outside to plan an outing there. The drummers don’t appear much before noon so in the morning I did a little Barcelona practice sketch with my limited palette of Ultramarine, Alizarin and Aureolin. In the afternoon Marc gave the group some great exercises and tips on drawing people in motion as a practice for his workshop in Barcelona. You’ll notice that I didn’t post my people drawings because I am really RUSTY. Need to get out and do a bit of that this week but this was a great start and it got me very excited for the Symposium.
