Urban Sketchers Workshop in Old Montreal

This morning we regrouped 30 urban sketchers coming from the USA, British Columbia, Ontario and Quebec. We started in Old Montreal and then moved onwards to the Mary Queen of the World Cathedral, which has such a beautiful name and dome. It was funny as two men started talking with Laurel, and they told her: “We live there!” I turned around to realize that they were priests. They were kind of cool looking. Our instructor was Marc Taro Holmes and I hopefully applied his teachings in this painting. (Mom, I sure hope that you like it as I know that you love this cathedral -))

Ce matin 30 personnes des États-Unis, Colombie-Britannique, Ontario et Québec se sont regroupés pour un atelier de croqueurs urbains dans le Vieux-Montréal. J’ai eu la chance d’être avec Marc Taro Holmes qui était l’instructeur et cette peinture porte le fruit de ses instructions. Cette basilique s’appelle la Basilique cathédrale Marie-Reine du Monde et a un si beau nom. Elle a été construite en 1870 et est une réplique  de la Basilique St-Pierre de Rome.
