Sketchcrawl 35

Had a great time!! Great company & the rain did not dampen the day... Wandered through the Musée d'Histoire de Montréal, an interesting permanent collection and exhibit of Lost Neighbourhoods, we also took in the view from the 3rd floor and walkway...

We took the metro over to the EV Building @ Concordia, see the view from the Studio Arts side... A view I found very distracting through my first semester. 

I love Montreal, it's such a vibrant and welcoming place. I've spent more time downtown this past fall & winter than all my trips in combined in the past, when it was just a treat to go in and do something interesting. Would love to go on an architectural tour of some sort... so many interesting buildings. Also overdue to revisit the CCA. Saw a wonderful exhibit there once on FL Wright's designs that never materialized. (the spiral drive still in my head)... What an imagination.


  1. These sketches are wonderful. This is something I really want to be able to do. For whatever reason I have some kind of artistic block about sketching. I can draw when I sit down with my reference image or still life arrangement, but to do these quick spontaneous life sketches brings me fear. I know practice is the answer.

  2. Thank you, Roberta! Why don't you try... taking a photo of something you want to sit & sketch & start working from it... then continue on by looking at the actual scene, just use the photo to start you off? Then the next time, use it less. Then try 'live'. Might work. I know your work is wonderful, I know you can do it. <3
