First drawing

Friday 10. 08. 18 I was looking through some old papers for the receipt for my canoe when I came across this drawing. It must be one of my first, done when I was 6.

Merrickville

Friday 03. 08. 18 Just back from an exciting trip to see Martin and Beryl. Martin and I went into Ottawa and managed to get to the Cube Gallery, The National Gallery and The Table where Suzette was exhibiting. I also had lunch with Roy and Suzette at the Yellow Canoe. Plus we watched 8 episodes of Better Call Saul – busy times!

Santa Maria

Tuesday 17. 07. 18 Rode to the beach in Mèze this morning but it was quite windy so continued on to Séte where this replica of the Santa Maria is moored for a few days. I am always surprised at how small these ships were.

Ruskin

Tuesday 10. 07. 18 I have been reading John Ruskin’s The Elements of Drawing and keep meaning to do some plein air sketches but I get distracted by the sunshine and warm water as at Mèze today.

Musée de Lodève

 

Sunday 08. 07. 18 Rode over to the new renovated museum this morning. It is a lot bigger and they have done a great job on the renos but I still find it an odd mix with the Paul Dardé sculptures and the archeological exhibits. Did this little watercolour in the afternoon.

Summer is here

 

Monday 25. 06. 18 And the living is easy. Finally made it to Trois Digues today for the first time this year. Wonderful, the sea was refreshing but not cold.
