The Artistes dans les parcs went back to what is now called Parc des Moulins, but the area used to be the Quebec zoo. Oh how I wish we still had animals to draw but politics brought the zoo to an end, a needless end.
Anyway, it was a hot day but I set up in the sun at one end of a large impound that used to house the alligators. It’s a pond with small islands for alligator basking and a building at one end so people could look down on the critters. The islands are now overgrown so while this sketch doesn’t have any alligators, it does have lots of plants. The mandatory alligator-proof wall is still in place around it and it seemed only fitting that it be included in the scene.
