:: Happy tugboat ::

“Surprise is key in all art.”
— Oscar Niemeyer

Today the sunshine was out, over 60 sketchers turned up to sketch, draw, paint and talk together and it was an amazing day. The site was actually very rewarding as there were a multitude of things to paint… actually we will have to come back! Old grain silos, wonderful vistas of Old Montreal, a beautiful red tugboat, Habitat 67, boaters, people, bikers galore and much more. Everyone said that they wanted to come back, and they are right! We will -) Sketchers from as far away as Victoria B.C. showed up, the Eastern Townships, Sherbrooke and Burlington, Vermont. What a neat crowd of people, and we all seemed very happy to be there. It was a very rewarding day.

I took a picture of all of us (except moi the photographer) holding our sketchbooks and grinning into the camera. Enjoy and hope to see you next month, for the 4th Sunday at Marché Jean-Talon -)
