The goose and the osprey
It was an Urban Sketchers Montreal afternoon at the Redpath Museum, but it was bird day for me. I started with the big old Canada Goose because I am beginning a project soon that involves drawing lots of geese so I thought I’d get in some practice. The wonderful thing about this museum is that there’s something for everyone to draw. Some people in our group drew the dinosaurs and others did musical instruments. I saw sketches of stuffed leopards and mummies and fossils but my favorites were the ones by Emmanuel who sketched only the eyes of all the creatures. A few of us tried a bit of drawing outside in the morning but after 52 minutes (yes, we timed it!) in the frigid temperatures we congratulated ourselves on our hardiness and headed for coffee before the doors of the museum opened.
