Urban Sketching "1900 Store"

This is from a little while ago when I was sketching en plein air and wasn't even aware of the Urban Sketching movement. All I know is that this informal and personal way of recording something gives me relief from the burden of having to produce something which SELLS.

Urban Sketch "Victoria Harbour from the Bay Centre"

Watercolour and Pen 10 x 12 inches.

From the restaurant window at the the top of the Bay Centre in Government Street, Victoria BC. The harbour is a busy place with boats, float planes and kayakers. Urban sketching is the new Plein Air and I'm loving it - quick and enjoyable.
