The Artistes dans les parcs provided a unique opportunity to sketch at La Foyer de Charite Notre Dame (I think I have that right). Anyways, it’s a huge estate, built on a hill overlooking the St. Lawrence River. It was built by the guy who started the Bank of Montreal.
Here’s a sketch of my buddy Yvan sketching a fountain. I’ve started using the Moleskine watercolor book I mentioned recently and I really don’t like the paper. The colors just all look dull to me when compared to the same paint on my S&B sketchbooks.
After lunch we were up high on the hill. My knee didn’t want to move, so I decided to draw the coastline I could see when I looked over the cliff. The tide was out and I was faced with this scene.
