Well, the last time I was on the Plains of Abraham (in Jardin Jeanne d’Arc) I froze because I dressed for summer and Mother Nature was still thinking early spring. So, I returned on Friday, in long pants and wearing a jacket. And I’m glad I did because it was very pleasant to sit in a grassy area and draw this scene.
The structure is an interesting one. It is a military observation/gun emplacement built by the British to defend against a potential attack from the United States. What’s interesting about it is that you’re looking at the “thin” side of the building. The walls on this side are typical stone while on the side facing south the walls are very thick to withstand cannon fire, and maybe even a Trump speech (grin).
