Canada Cold Is Very Cold

Canada Cold Is Very Cold - student project

This project started when I was about 12 years old back in Ottawa Ontario. We all went on our first 'sketching trip', sort of like going fishing without the smell. I still have that first oil sketch and it was also my first original picture.

Sketching promotes contact and originality. Beethoven went 'soung sketching' every day. He looked, he smelled, and he listened, even after he was deaf, he still listened. It's all inside waiting to come out in your very own original way. Sketching will change your artistic life if you pursue it.

Here are a few sketches of an area in British Columbia called the Okanagan District. 

Use watercolor, ink and wash, acrylic, oil, and anything else that makes a mark to record your outdoor experience.
