My Toronto. Stay home and Urban sketching. Travel and Art. Marine theme. Part 3.


Usually the city anxiously waits for the summer period when all people pour out into the streets, bars and parks.

Residential buildings, palaces, old churches, doorknobs, lanterns, kissing couples, lonely old people – in short, everything that conveys the mood, emotions and atmosphere around. The most important thing is not to try to create a masterpiece or repeat the feat of Monet.

Toronto downtown beach at Ontario lake with a view of CN tower. What a variety of bright yellow colours: canary yellow for beach umbrellas, warm muted yellow colour for some beach chairs and light beige for urban beach sand.

Another marine theme of urban sketching in Toronto. Residential fountain Floats with background of downtown Toronto. Children love the moment when suddenly water is “jumping” from fountain to the top:). Bright colours of the floats are adding joyful and magic to the neighborhood of Ontario lake.

Rainy city of Toronto with water reflections of high-risers. I was looking at the city’s reflection in the puddles. Crystal shine, sparkling edges, light rustling sound and overflows… Swiftness of motion and infinity.

You look, and the thought begins to flow slowly and unhurriedly, time freezes, and you rush for the stream, it pulls you there, the infinity of movement fascinates.

Bon voyage! Until the next travel:) Stay healthy.
