We visited Vancouver for two days and got rained out over there instead of at home in Nanaimo. It is nevertheless an interesting change of scenery with a skyline of tall buildings that seem to be popping up everywhere like mushrooms with interesting shapes and detailing. It is also a town with too many people who appear to be in a rush all the time, particularly when driving a car. Parking your vehicle is somewhat of a challenge or a huge expense or both.
I tried to make a sketch on Granville Island, but could not focus; too cold. Instead I checked out a variety of baking products at the market.
The second day I parked the car in Kitsilano’s residential area and sketched this back lane scene along Arbutus Street and Whyte Avenue, using the front seat of the car as a studio.
