Two views of the Lachine Canal
How fortunate that Urban Sketchers Montreal picked the nicest day of the year so far for our April outing. When we met around 10 a.m. it was looking like it might just be the perfect spring day and as we sketched more and more people arrived along the Lachine Canal. By bike, on foot, on roller blades, with dogs and babies and aunties and girlfriends. I think all of Montreal passed us by at some point. And we all breathed a common sigh of relief. We are done with winter.
I couldn’t stay all day but I did one sketch facing west and another view of the city from across the canal looking over the Atwater market towards downtown and Mount Royal.
