2018 my ARtProject continues. The project began January 2016 as I challenged myself to draw, paint, or sketch a few times a week. The objective: practice, not to be perfect. My project has moved from postcard size with a bit more confidence to larger formats. I continue with the intent to practice, to work “en plein air”, and most of all to enjoy the experiences that the drawing exercises bring.
In 2016, I recorded our travels and created 77 unique watercolour postcards highlighting our adventures. In 2017, with new paints and brushes in hand, my Postcard Project continued. I wanted to gain more confidence, work “en plein air” and experiment with different size paper and techniques. 2017 was a year closer to home, with frequent travels between Ottawa, Ontario and Montreal, Quebec. A highlight of the year included a sketching/plein air/watercolour workshop in Oxford, England with Stephanie Bower, which was amazing. My favourite lesson was sketching the beautiful Brasenose Lane. The horizon line is constant, and the buildings reference a variety of vanishing points.
