Quebec is at the threshold of spring. It’s starting to act like early April, with fluctuating temps and rainy days. This is a good sign even if it is May. I was on my way to a sketching session at the Museé de la Civilisation and noticed a new park bench that had been set out on 3rd Avenue. It was cool (mid-40s) but sunny and the bench was out of the wind. Opportunity thought I, and I sat down. Sometimes you choose your subject, sometimes you choose a place to put your butt. I looked around for something to sketch and decided on this small corner store.
I worked quickly but admit to being a bit chilled by the time I finished and I was happy to get back to walking. I met Yvan at the museum and here’s what I drew there. It was a fun day and it looks like outdoor sketching is gonna happen ‘real soon.’ Fountain pens are still more fun than pencils.
