Whistler village

This is an attempt to represent some of the scenery visible from the village in Whistler. The area is too beautiful to adequately capture in a sketch. I attended a business conference there and drew this one morning from the sixth floor balcony of the Cascade Lodge. The view is looking to the north-west over the rooftops of several other buildings.

Fishing boats in False Creek

A large number of fishing boats moor in a sheltered corner of False Creek, near Vancouver's Granville Market and just east of the Burrard Bridge. While much of the fish is destined for wholesalers, some is also sold to the general public. It's a nice spot to watch boats coming and going.
