MacNab – Day 2

Hamilton Sketches

Another difficult day of sketching the MacNab Street Church: the sun, the heat, the traffic, the trains and the walls.

To avoid the street traffic, I moved to a spot next to the rear wall of the Whitehearn Mansion.

The new location offered a little more peace than being on Hunter Street.

Unfortunately, the new location offered less of a view than the Hunter Street spot.  Much of the lower portion of the Church was hidden from view.

In addition to this challenge, the sun’s glare and the deep shadows on the face of the Church made drawing details almost impossible.  As a result, progress was limited.

Given the challenges, I think I will need to finish the sketch by using photographs.
