Quebec City Street Scenes

Quebec City, particularly the older parts of the city, has many street scenes that are worthy of a sketcher’s time.  Often the streets are narrow and the buildings are connected to one another.

These form great urban scenes and the only thing that limits a sketcher is time and the place to sit while doing the sketch.  Time, scene and place to sit came together and I sketched this autumn scene.

  1. The last two drawings – Quebec street scene and the ring-billed gull (especially this one) – seem to have a slightly different quality: a lightness I have either not seen or not noticed before. I don’t have the nuanced vocabulary of an art critic to describe what evokes the feeling. Perhaps there is something with the toned paper. Both are very nice. I hope the snow holds out for a while longer. Thank you for sharing.

  2. Greetings! I know this is kinda off topic nevertheless
    I’d figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest writing a blog
    post or vice-versa? My site discusses a lot of the same topics as yours and I think we could greatly benefit from each other.
    If you happen to be interested feel free to send me an email.

    I look forward to hearing from you! Fantastic blog by the way!
