Triceratop at Redpath Museum : Tricératop au Musée Redpath

January 26, 2014

“Let us be grateful to the people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.” 
― Marcel Proust

Went to the Redpath Museum today with the Montreal Urban Sketchers group and we were very glad to be indoors as it is still -20C. This group is made up of a very nice bunch of people and the museum is very generous of its assorted exhibits of indigenous & prehistoric animals, shells, minerals, world culture (ethnological) artefacts – a true natural history museum. I was glad to meet some old painting acquaintances.

Aujourd’hui nous avions notre rendez-vous mensuel des Sketchers urbains de Montréalau Musée Redpath de Montréal. Il faisait très froid dehors, -20C, donc nous étions tous bien contents d’être au chaud. Le musée Redpath est un musée d’histoire naturelle qui est assez incroyable… les espèces indigènes, préhistoriques, coquillages de toutes sortes, minéraux, culture ethnologique avec beaucoup d’artéfacts!

    i like the solidity of this sketch Jane, your colours and the overlay of transparencies.
    Wow, have you ever made progress! Congratulations🙂 It really shows what practice
    can do ! I am a faithful fan of Shari, as are you🙂 But alas, i don’t practice like you.

      Why thank you Mary — I have not been practicing as much as I would like, as everyone that strives to paint I guess feel this way at some point in their lives -) thank you for your really nice observations!
