Drawing people in coffee houses can fall into predictable patterns with most sitting in chairs reading or looking down at their smart phones. You do get to observe dialog but most of the time it’s people looking down. But still, I like to capture the entire space and there are few gems like this guy with his feet in such incredibly stressed positions.

Drawing urban landscapes it is important to get the scale and correct perspective. Something I clearly failed to do with the lamp post.

This is a nice little pub, Dominion on Queens, on Queen Street East in Corktown neighborhood of Toronto near my friend Eugene’s place. I like this pub as it’s very intimate and cozy and they actually have very good soup.

This is one of the oldest parts of town and it’s right near the St. Lawrence Market. I still struggle with drawing cars but I’ve learned to start with ovals and that helps get the gist.
Toronto is a city that you cannot capture with just one image. Sure the CN Tower is probably the most pictured image of the city, but there’s a great mix of old and mostly new architecture in the city. I particularly like the U of T area of the city where you get a great mix of people and place.
