Three Chinese Symbols :: Trois symboles chinois

March 24, 2013

About 18 Montreal Urban Sketchers met at Restaurant Kam Fung on St. Urbain street this morning for a Dim Sun breakfast and sketch at the same time. Quite cool! While I was painting a chinese lady looked over my shoulder to tell me that if I drew these symbols, I had to draw the three of them together and not leave one of them out. So I heeded her advice, and painted all three — the rooster, the dragon and the Prosperity or Happiness symbol (not sure).

Nous étions 18 à se rencontrer pour déjeuner ce matin au Restaurant Kam Fung sur St-Urbain pour faire des croquis ou peindre et en mangeant des Dim Sun… bien amusant! Une femme chinoise a regardé par-dessus mon épaule pour me dire que mon dessin n’était pas correct et que je devais peindre les trois symboles ensembles et non séparément (comme j’étais en train de le faire). Je l’ai écoutée😉 Voici le coq, le dragon et je crois le symbole pour la Prospérité ou le Bonheur… pas sûre.
