The weather is still frisky here in my neck of the woods and they are predicting that for this Sunday it will be beautiful outside. This is great as the Urban Sketchers of Montreal are collaborating with the City of Pointe Claire for a Vernissage this Sunday July 5 at the Stewart Hall Art Gallery. Everyone is welcome to come and sketch, and bring your lunch too as we are meeting at 10:00 am and by 2:00 pm the official opening of the exhibit “A Sketch in Time” will take place where Shari Blaukopf, Marc Taro Holmes and myself will be exhibiting sketches & sketchbooks in the Gallery.
Tonight I did a special exercise… as I was listening to a TV show, I decided to sketch the people that were being interviewed. This is an exercise that helps visual memory and helps to loosen up as it is a very fast process. The minute that you lift your eyes, the image is gone! I will definitely redo this.
