The Spires of Quebec City

If you follow my blog you know that there are a lot of pointy things that rise up from the citiscape and that I love to draw them.  Nowhere is this more evident than in the old city area where there seems to be more churches, tall fountains and statues than there are people.  I’m trying to work my way through some severe back pain that’s limiting my ability to sketch (can’t sit on my stool as it’s too low), but I found a bench facing a nice stack of those pointy things and I drew this.  The statue is in front of the old post office and I’m looking west, towards City Hall.

    You have so much great stuff to sketch right in your own backyard! Hope your back is feeling better soon — that’s no fun.

    • Hey, I don’t have people throwing out old couches like you have 🙂 It’s true that about an hour’s walk from me is an amazing UNESCO heritage city that’s full of “stuff” to draw and I’m happy to have it. But as you know, sketching subjects are everywhere. You just have to see those subjects that way. — Larry
