' Tara Donovan - Animator: Sketching at Riverdale Farm

Sketching at Riverdale Farm

March 27, 2012
My talented son painting :oD
Last weekend I had the great fortune to convince my teenage son to join me on a sketching expedition, along with his buddy and his Dad.  We went to a great local spot: downtown Toronto's fantastic Riverdale Farm.  It's open year-round from 9-5, and it's *free*. It's also really close to my house so I trek there quite often.

We brought sketchbooks, pencils, pigment-ink felt pens and a tiny watercolour set I made decades ago that still serves me well.

It was a great way to spend a rainy March afternoon. I hope we have many more sketching trips as fun as this one.
