KWUSk at Rockway Gardens



While the big Urban Sketchers Symposium wrapped up in Singapore, our little group spent a few hours at Rockway Gardens in Kitchener. I remember this building used to be the Swiss Castle Inn and was one of the first 'fancy' restaurants I went to when I was younger. I was disappointed to see the Rockway Restaurant (and its amazing milkshakes) was also gone, but I helped myself get over the loss with some cheese bread and a brownie from the City Cafe Bakery down the street.

KWUSk at the Night Art Market



A small but mighty group of us KW Urban Sketchers met Downtown Kitchener this weekend to check out the Night Art Market. We sketched buskers and vendors and this amazing sand sculpture artist and then headed down the street to the opening reception for the July exhibit at The Art District Gallery. I tried out these new Prismacolor pens that a sketch buddy recommended and I'm so in love with them that I'm ditching my Copics and my Pigma Microns for them (for now, anyways).
Tools: Prismacolor pen, watercolour pencil
Snack: Williams Mango Raspberry Chiller and a chocolate chip cookie of perfection.
