Here are some photos and a few drawings I took while on a trip with my Plien Aire group to the St Rapheals Ruins in Glengarry, Ontario. Although I only created 2 drawings and they are not my best. mainly due to them being done too quickly. I also usually pack light, since I do not have a car, and usually only bring what I can fit into my backpack, especially when I am getting a ride somewhere.
The highlight for the trip for me was taking my photos. This was once a catholic church that burned down in the 1970s. After that, the ruins became a tourist attraction.
The original church, I believe was the oldest church in Ontario, Canada. The oldest church left in now the one in St Andrews Ontario, only perhaps 30km away.
Here are my photos!

Gorgeous photos! Looks like such an interesting place to visit. I love your sketches and how they give us an idea of your process and how the buildings inspired you. Will you do some paintings based on this experience?
I always use my photographs for my paintings, unfortunately it can sometimes be a few years before I get around to it. I am currently doing a pointillism painting of a Wild Turkey I photographed in 2020.
