May Sketchcrawl Down Limoilou Allies

Some of the most fascinating parts of a city are behind the scenes, the back doors if you will.  In parts of Quebec City, most notably Limoilou, these are accessible to the artist through the ruelles or allies.  Most parts of Quebec City don’t have them but Limoilou has them and that’s where we’re headed for our next sketchcrawl, on Sunday May 8th.  For details of the event, head to Croquistes de Quebec website  for details.  If you need motivation, here’s a wonderful video that the Ottawa Urban Sketchers did when they did an similar sketchcrawl.  See you there.

    Lovely post Larry – Quebec City back alleys would be awesome to sketch. And thanks for the video link! Love your work Larry! Cheers

    • Hi Cindy, thanks for stopping by.

      I hope we’ll have fun. As luck would have it, we’re supposed to get rain on Sunday, when the sketchcrawl is scheduled, but there is so much to draw that it should be fun. And if it rains too much there’s always the coffee shops.

      I love what you guys are doing in Ottawa. You’ve become a dynamic, organized group in a short period of time and I do hope to sketch with some of you this summer. — Larry.
