Ellen and I celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary on beautiful Île d’Orléans situated in the St. Lawrence River near Quebec City. On the island there are six farming communities. They produce everything from fresh fruits and vegetables to wonderful preserves, wines and hand crafted items. We spent six days on the island with one day in Quebec City and explored all of the individual farming communities, visiting wineries, craft shops and art galleries. Delicious meals at the island’s excellent restaurants were also very much enjoyed.
The last “urban sketches” I posted were done back in June of this year. I had hoped to do more in the intervening time but have been preoccupied with my iPad and Procreate app as well as life drawing. I finally had a good opportunity and the motivation to do some sketching while we were on Île d’Orléans.
