From the Governor’s GardenPosted: July 27, 2012
My city is full of surprises and I discover something almost every time I go out to sketch. Hidden behind the Chateau Ramezay Historic Site and Museum is the Governor’s Garden. Part kitchen garden, part orchard and part ornamental plants — this perfect little oasis next to Old Montreal’s most crowded square even has benches which I am fairly certain are there for sketchers. I was going to draw the garden itself but the shadows were so perfect on the gables of the houses on the perimeter that I started with those.
