USK MTL in La Presse!

November 12, 2016

If you download today’s issue of La Presse (Sat Nov. 12) available for free on the Apple App Store, you’ll find a terrific feature in the Voyage section all about Urban Sketchers Montreal.

I believe issues of the paper stay in the app for a week, so you’ll have to check it out soon to read the article. (French language).

The app allows for some neat interactivity, including a pop-up drawing showing before and after versions of one of my sketches and the ‘real world’  – as well as a fun section on supplies, where you can click on various tools and see explanations.

The article expands on the world-wide urban sketching phenomena, featuring a gallery of some of the top sketching cities in the world. (Seattle, Singapore, New York, Berlin, Hong Kong and Paris). Have a look if you know anyone in those towns – they might have a sketch in our paper!

    Hi Greg I’ll do my best to get some sketches to you. I have been traveling to Ottawa a fair amount lately. I received this latest message originating from Marc Taro on behalf of Urban Sketchers this morning. In the LaPress article, he and Shari can be seen sketching together in the bottom photo. ‘Aquarelle’ is the French word for watercolour (painting). Google translate might help with deciphering the French. Or, I can provide a rudimentary ‘gist’ of what they’ve written. Cheers, Chris
