Following three days of sketching in Montreal, we had to move our daughter from Ottawa to her new place in Montreal. We burned up Sunday moving her stuff and filling Ikea’s coffers with our money.
That went smoothly so by Monday morning the only thing left were a bunch of boxes that needed to be emptied. It had determined that I was not smart enough to help with that process because I wouldn’t put things in the right place and so I was told to “go sketching and bring back lunch.”
Those were orders I could march to so I headed out the door. I found this amazing piece of architecture only a few minutes away and there was a shady area on the opposite street corner. I set up to do a leisurely sketch.
When I finished the sketch I packed up and headed to Notobene, my new favorite store, because Anne-Laure had bought a rainbow pencil there and I wanted one too. I bought two and then drew a couple people while leaning against the wall outside. Then it was time for forage for lunch. It was a fitting ending to this amazing sketching trip. With my daughter living in Montreal I’ll have ample reasons to return so I’ll be sketching in Montreal regularly from now on.
Fortuitous move! Let’s see the rainbow pencil! Is that the one you posted in Erasables recently?
Yes, those are the ones. Rainbow pencils are something I buy in the name of drawing more loosely but so far my brain has not bought into it 🙂
