The Sketch Hunter :: Le chasseur de sketch

THE SKETCH HUNTER has delightful days of drifting about among people, in and out of the city, going anywhere, everywhere, stopping as long as he likes — no need to reach any point, moving in any direction following the call of interests. He moves through life as he finds it, not passing negligently the things he loves, but stopping to know them, and to note them down in the shorthand of his sketchbook, a box of oils with a few small panels, the fit of his pocket, or on his drawing pad. Like any hunter he hits or misses. He is looking for what he loves, he is trying to capture it. It’s found anywhere, everywhere. 
–The Art Spirit by Robert Henri (1865-1929)

URBAN SKETCHERS OF MONTREAL
We will be meeting this coming Sunday, October 27th, at the Metro Mount-Royal at 10:00 am. This is an opportunity for everyone to bring in their pencils, or pens, or brushes… whatever you like to draw/paint with and sketch together what surrounds us. This destination is quite interesting as there are numerous typical architectural artifacts as well as people gazing. I will be there, rain or shine, this coming Sunday. Indeed, I had to displace/replace/misplace certain obligations, but I will be there! Yeah!

Ce dimanche le 27 octobre les croqueurs urbains de Montréal se rencontrent au métro Mont-Royal pour 10h00. Qu’il pleuve, ou pas, j’y serai… j’ai déplacé, replacé, refait, rediriger pleins d’obligations pour faire place à cet événement… j’y serai — yeah!

Paper: Arches 140 lbs CP
Colours: Aureolin Yellow, Alizarin Crimon and Prussian Blue

  1. Aujourd’hui une fée m’a dessiné une fleur vêtue de couleurs célestes. J’en voudrais encore pour offrir a ma blonde grisonnante. Et encore bravo.

  2. Jane, this is really lovely. The way the colours blend and flow is my idea of a really good watercolour painting!
