The leaves are falling from the trees and temperatures are heading in the same direction. It won’t be long before I won’t be able to stalk the streets of Québec, looking for buildings to sketch. I guess I’ll have to go inside and stalk Quebecers to sketch.
But I was out today and walking a street I’d walked many times. Either I’m going blind or this small ‘casse-croute’ (in some places it would be called a chips stand) has just gotten a very bright facelift. In any case today gave me opportunity to capture its essense, which I did.
I did the basic sketch on site but decided to come home to do all the signage as I wanted to try out some different tools. To that end, the large sign and the plates of food were done with colored pencils, a medium I have yet to conquer. The ‘Frites maison’ sign was done with some Stabilo felt pens I just bought…and like very much for doing such things. The building’s kinda cute, don’tcha think?
