Our group wanted to sketch some more in the allies of Limoilou. I’ve written about our previous sketching sessions there. This part of the city was built mostly during the period where alleyways were used for garbage collection, electric wires, and other services.
But while the rest of the group headed off to the alleys, I decided to draw a chapel on 3rd Avenue. I’ve wanted to sketch it for a long time and think most about the idea when there are no leaves on the trees as this affords a better view of the building. But trees are nice too and this is what it looks like in July.
When I finished I wandered around the alleys looking for the group. I found them and they were all finishing up drawing an alley scene. I only had a few minutes but I documented this gaggle of sketchers.
