The Water Tower in Chicago done last Friday while we ate Garrett popcorn. I put a little color on it this week while painting other projects.

Still dabbling in portraits in the sketchbook. We saw X-Men Monday and loved it in spite of the Kitty Pryde heresy.
Jame McAvoy is very good in the movie though.
One of the first movies I saw him in was Atonement. My friend who went with me commented on how depressing it was even though the name is not exactly a positive one.
Happy Birthday Vincent Price! Today’s warm up sketch.
Warm up sketch of Neil Gaiman in watercolor. Playing around with portraits.

I went sketching with my friends Pat Ann and Larry on Friday at Oakville Harbor near Toronto. It is close to Sheridan College where they met and used to sketch together.
The weather was unexpectedly cool and it started to rain soon after we sat down so I finished it later in the hotel. The area was lovely though; lots of new construction.
The weather Saturday was spectacular though!
