Pond Hockey

So, I'll start this with was pretty cold (-7C) and I have been trying to draw quickly with energy.  The problem is that my hand seems to turn into a claw after about 5 minutes. I did the sketch outside then retreated to my car to muddle and fuss and overwork with some paint.  

In any event, sketching is about the moment. Yesterday was bright and sunny and the pond at Brown's inlet was smooth and hard.  Perfect for some shinny. It doesn't get much more Canadian than that.


  1. A perfect Canadian sketch John. Even if it was drawn with a claw.

    1. I suppose if I was real whiner, I'd claim that its hard to draw while skating.

      Thanks for the encouragement Shari.
