From my sketchbooki ~ My Quebec Journal


the cover
For my recent teaching gig in Quebec, with Arts and Cultural Travel, we used my new fave. The Senneilier Urban Sketchbook. I used it for my Ghost Ranch journal too, and I like that you can draw and watercolor on both sides of the accordion book.

Above, I attached a photo of Don and I to the cover.

I love adding maps to my journals. Did you know that Montreal's motto has been "Harmony through Diversity" for 200 years! Another reason I love Montreal!

The business card is from an excellent Montreal tour guide, Thom Seivewright.
