Back in my room I opened the curtains and decided to sketch the view of Stanley Park and the Lions Gate Bridge beyond. The trees are just starting to turn out there and the colours are a deep orange and burnt sienna mix. The flora out there is mostly conifer, but dotted with those lovely oaks and maples.
On Wednesday I flew out to Calgary and the plane approached the city in a magnificent storm. The rain/snow was falling over the city but the sunset around the city was a deep golden hew on a rich blue and gray sky. I wish I had my camera with me. It was a symphony of colours and breath-taking shapes. Note to self: Never fly without your camera again.
On the way back home last night I did a small sketch of a picture from the in-flight magazine. All in all not a very exciting sketching week, but nevertheless, my brushes were thankful to get wet again!
