Sketching the way Home to Nova Scotia

A sketch book and some drawing material make a link to a place no matter where you go. Pencils and markers work well on paper or boards and pack easily for moving fast. The city sketch above was made on a recent long road trip that a few minutes opened up just as the sun rose over Quebec City. The previous day we were lucky enough to find a room available in the city of Levis Quebec just across the river from the Old Town of Quebec City. The window provided a perfect viewing site out of the cool northern air that still filled the streets and out came the markers and pad.
As the sun rises this morning I find myself drawing along Halifax Harbour with a pencil and board. It is a world of contrasts with cranes moving and ships arriving to exchange cargos. So much to do with unfinished work to complete, I better get moving.
