Lookout

May 25, 2014

There’s no shortage of places to paint on the mountain but the classic view is from the lookout at the top, and it seems like all of Montreal was up there today. It was a perfect day in every way — spectacular spring weather, our best ever turnout for USk Montreal (I counted over 30 sketchers!) and all the trees in bloom. The view over the city was cloaked in haze. I tried to sketch it in pencil and watercolour but it was too mushy and soft in the moleskine sketchbook so I added some pen for structure — thicker Sharpie lines for the foreground and finer Micron lines for the distant view.
