I missed the Urban Sketchers meeting at the Jean Talon market so I went there by myself and sketched a maple syrup vendor. In the rain ....And yes, it was Canada Day.

Every now and then I get an email from the Art Tutor. This time it was a short tutorial about painting trees and I could not help but try it.

I was under dressed (it is California after all ... and I assumed it must also be hot) and one of the days I was there it rained cats and dogs. I was so cold I did not go anywhere. These are the rainy sketches:
