Mount Royal Park – too slow for Tam Tams

June 30, 2013

Just back from the outing to Mount Royal Park. I started with our Angel-on-a-stick (properly called the George-Étienne Cartier Monument) while waiting for the Tam Tams to get going. I’m thinking, this is cool – sketching with a sound track – I’ll enjoy this for a while. But by the time I get my act together to go sketch the musicians there’s a HUGE crowd gathered. No doubt it has something to with the pretty girls belly dancing. So – no way I can get a good view. After being rained out of at least two tries at sketching Tam Tams – I’m still going to have to back!



After lunch at the shiny new food trucks (Montreal has just allowed street food to be a thing) the group actually did a something very cool. Everyone agreed to do a test run of next weeks workshop exercises. I had a chance to see what people had trouble with, where I have some blind spots, things I might not have explained thoroughly. So that’s pretty awesome of everyone. Makes the upcoming workshop that much better. I’m impressed they were willing to give up half our sketching day to help out.  Three cheers for USK:MTL! I’m just processing my own sketches from that. So I’ll post them later, along with a quick outline of the exercises in case anyone wants to try some drills at home.

    Hi! I love your sketch of the George-Étienne Cartier Angel Statue and would love to have a conversation about potentially licensing it for a cover of a book or poetry. Please get back to me asap! Thanks!
