|5"x7" Annex Neighborhood|
Earlier this month I found myself in Toronto, Ontario Canada. Why was I there in March after one of the worst winters in history? It’s a long story but in short we were on the East Coast for my brother’s wedding and decided to do a side trip to Toronto. Toronto has a lot of great Architecture and neighborhoods just asking to be sketched but my hopes of doing a load of outdoor urban sketching and painting were dampened by the 15-30 deg F weather. I did however make the best of it and was able to do a bit of sketching from inside looking out windows and also at the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) and Ripley’s Aquarium. Below are the results from my sketchbooks, these were done in my 8 ½” x 11” Stillman and Birns Alpha sketchbook and the small ones are from a 5”x7” ”Nature Sketch” sketchbook.

Soon I will be posting sketched from part 2 of the trip Niagara Falls.
