The Rite of Spring :: Le sacre du printemps

April 28, 2013

I listened to Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring as I was driving into Montreal this morning… and this music stayed with me all morning. About 15 Montreal Urban Sketchers regrouped today at the Atwater Market on this wonderful spring day… everyone was there… musicians, bikers, babies, parents… as if spring was urging us to get outside after hibernating for 6 months. I painted with Jennifer and Uma and we chatted along as we were painting. Quite fun, relaxing and nice.

J’ai écouté le Sacre du printemps de Stravinsky en conduisant à Montréal ce matin… et cette musique m’a enlacée toute la journée. Aujourd’hui nous nous sommes regroupés environ 15 personnes au Marché Atwater pour peindre ensemble. Tout le monde était là… musiciens, cycleurs, bébés, parents… comme si le printemps nous avait donné l’ordre de sortir de notre hibernation annuelle. J’ai peint avec Jennifer et Uma, et c’était super! Relaxant et agréable.

    I enjoyed sketching with you too this morning. Your sketch looks great all scanned up.

    Hi Jenn :: I added a tad of detail with a pencil when I got home as I felt that it looked 2-dimensionless… can I say that?
