Looking down and up

January 27, 2013

Urban Sketchers Montreal met at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts today. Every time we meet there are more of us which makes me pretty happy (18 sketchers today!!). The museum is the ideal place to gather because  there is a plethora of stuff to draw— the sculptures, the architectural spaces, the visitors, the views from the picture windows— and the sketches captured it all. I found a window ledge on the fourth floor facing north with a view up Avenue du Musée towards the mountain.

Here’s some of the group at the end of the day near the Jim Dine sculpture that was our meeting spot. (The person sleeping on the sofa is not one of us!) I took a group shot at lunch but my lighting was bad so I am posting a partial group shot instead.

    It was great to see everyone out today. The view of the mountain is really nice – I love the colours.

    Good view from there right? and you caught the light against the snow well and at the right moment which makes all the difference. I was with you guys in thought.

      Yes, great view. Thanks for all your ideas Ray. I had never occurred to me that the views would be that good. We are still hoping you will be with us next month.
