Plateau Architecture :: Architecture du Plateau

Today was quite a cold day, close to freezing and they had forecast rain, but we were lucky. About 20 urban and courageous sketchers gathered in the Mount Royal Metro today to start off the day. Everyone seemed to be in good spirits. I went my own way as I knew that I did not have much time to complete a painting… and indeed, I did not have enough time as I had to finish painting this at my house this afternoon.

Aujourd’hui il faisait assez froid à Montréal, près du point de congélation, et nous nous sommes regroupés, des sketchers courageux urbains, au Métro Mont-Royal pour commencer la journée ensemble. Nous étions environ 20 personnes,  un groupe assez joyeux et plein d’énergie. Je me suis séparée du groupe car je savais que je devais partir pour 11h15 donc je n’avais pas de temps à perdre… et évidemment, je n’ai pas complété cette peinture et j’ai dû la finir chez moi.

Colours: Raw Sienna, Burnt Sienna and French Ultramarine
Paper: Larolan Sketchbook
Pen: Pilot Flexi Grip EF
Ink: Noodlers’ Lexington Grey
