Basse-Ville, Quebec and the Saint Lawrence, Morning

Graphite 9.5"x 8"

Another view of the oldest section of Quebec, Basse-Ville. Samuel de Champlain founded the first permanent settlement here in 1608.

I'm having a fantastic time drawing this wonderful city in pencil. Sometimes I simply crave getting the details down, which I can't do in a quick oil study.


  1. Your work is awesome and a great inspiration to me!

  2. Wow - great details, love those window shadows. Also how the foreground tree is softened so it doesn't draw too much attention, but it still has its own detail. Skills! :)
