What’s an urban sketcher to do when the weather turns bad. One thing is to go with other sketchers to a cafe where you can sketch and talk about sketching, pointy devices and anything else that might interest the group.
That’s what we did on Thursday. We drove to a great cafe and bakery on Ile d’Orleans. Called La Boulange, it’s a grand old house that’s been converted to a cafe. Great place to sketch in good weather and bad as there are lots of great scenes to sketch outdoors when weather permits.
On this day Yvan and I rattled on about fountain pens while Fernande and Claudette had fun drawing a family. Looking through a passageway from the bakery to the restaurant tables, I saw this scene.
