The DesBrisay Block

My first sketch in a Paper-oh A4 sketchbook, I started over lunch on the patio at Casa Mia with the right side of the COWS building. I added the former Henderson & Cudmore storefront on my way home, and finished the rest of the COWS building, running up Queen Street, after Oliver was off to bed (working from photos).

It’s an entirely different experience sketching on A4 after four months of the much smaller A6: having the extra room both allows more detail and allows for more material.

I’m happy with the result, although I have a list of things I wish I’d done better for the next time.

It's so impressive how skilled you've become in such a short time. Martin has been inspired to start sketching again and may even be following your fashion advice by purchasing a satchel in which to place his sketch pad. Just like a camera, if you don't have it with you, the moments and opportunities get lost.
