Mount Royal Sketchcrawl

October 28, 2012

Here’s my sketchbook pages from today’s Sunday Sketching with the Montreal Urban Sketchers. We lucked out on weather. Just warm enough to stand about and sketch with plenty of coffee shop breaks in between. Next outing (Nov 25) will be in the Redpath Museum on McGill Campus.

In a weird way, I like how this cheap book I had bleeds through. I sort of enhanced that in the scanning process. It’s not something you’d use for a serious drawing, but for these Lamy and water-brush sketches the effect is kind of neat. I was traveling super light gear wise – so these are ink-washed with diet pepsi.

We had 15 people turn out to draw, including a couple from Ontario. So, that was extra neat. This is turning into a great way to meet artists in Montreal.

    Très intéressant. Une spontanéité qui sait capter l’essentiel.

    Hi Marc

    I would have loved to have been there. I caught a cold a week or two ago that keeps reappearing. Your street scenes are beautiful, as always. I loved the ghost-like effect the previous page’s work had on the sky, Serendipitously, it set an interesting mood for your work. A feast for the viewer – Thanks.

    I have been meaning to comment on the paper that you used. I love the effect of seeing the other image through the think paper… it gives it such a grungy look that is quite good looking. And btw, as usual, your drawing skills are superb!
