Another Grey Morning - Sketch at Tap and Barrel
This is one of the million beautiful viewpoints on our daily dog walks. As I sat and sketched this I found myself signing 'Another Grey Morning' by James Taylor. It ain't exactly a tropical beach scene, but Vancouver has its own kind of beauty this time of year. Plus it's good practice capturing a full range of greys. The tiles in the foreground were fun. I didn't relish the idea of slavishly trying to capture the pattern, so I grabbed one of those red plastic netted bags that you buy oranges in. I twisted it into a formation I thought might work, anchored it with random objects and pounced a loaded brush on top of it. Voila, one million tiles in 20 seconds. Works for me :-)
My show at the Cultch came down today. It was a great experience all around. Many thanks to those of you who came out. I'll keep you posted for the next one.
