Century Park Market

I took my sketchbook with me to Century Park Market this past Sunday. It’s a little Sunday market (open from June to Sept). In it’s third year, it’s still pretty small (about 15 stalls) but slowly growing. This year I've seen a bicycle repair stall, very handy.

The Lamb Lady seemed quite passionate about the meat and wool products from her own farm outside Red Deer. She sells at 6 markets per week!

These bug shaped shoes for kids were a blast!

And great fruit.

Perhaps I’ll go again next Sunday!

Edmonton International Street Performers Festival

Perfect conditions and an entertaining venue for the Edmonton Urban Sketchers July Sketchcrawl. Our small group went to the Edmonton International Street Performers Festival in the main square in the city (Churchill Square).
This annual event lasts 10 days with lots of juggling and other weird and wonderful acts. 

One performer from the USA was called Peter Panic, I got his autograph on my sketch. 

My favourite was a lady wearing chaps with a giraffe skin print. She had really tiny feet at the end of her stilts. I wondered how she kept her balance.

Canada Day Escape

Sketched a bird watcher at Whitemud Ravine Nature Reserve, Edmonton while she was occupied. Quite a few more people out on the trail as it was the Canada Day public holiday.

The Whitemud Creek. One of our favourite spots, the reserve sits between a few neighbourhoods in south Edmonton.
