A Bit of Sketching Here and There

Christina Wald's Sketchbook Musings

First set of sketches from my trip to Portland, OR before the Icon Illustration conference started. As you can see, we went to a lot of gardens.

The top is a view of the Broadway Bridge from our condo.

More soon from the tip!

Several more sketches from the mini sketchbook in Chicago.

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.

Some of my favorite sketches from my mini-sketchbook done at the Chicago Urban Sketching seminar.

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.

Went sketching today at Miami Whitewater. I have always wanted to draw the swan boats. I want to rent one and take it out on the lake even more; probably too old though… (Me, not the boats…)

After spending the day at TCAF, Pat Ann and I went to sketch across from the Royal Ontario Museum. The weather was perfect for plein air!

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!
