a year of sketching outside

Yesterday was a special day for me. It marked One Year anniversary since my very first sketch outside. I remember how scared and shy I was that day, and how much I wanted to be invisible to the people around me. Since then I’ve grown a little braver and have done 33 sketches, including yesterday’s sketch. I wanted to come back to the same spot (in Stanley Park, by the Totem Poles) and paint exact same view as I did a year ago.

I sat a little closer (right on the seawall) this time as my last year’s spot was taken, plus I wanted the city scape to be more detailed. Nearly 2 hours and a sunburn later, that’s what I came up with, my anniversary sketch of sketching outside 🙂
