Vieux MontréalPosted: October 12, 2012
One of the things I love best about Urban Sketchers is that there is a network of people in many cities around the world who you can invite to sketch with you when you travel to their area. They become, in essence, ambassadors of their city. Today Marc Holmes and I were ambassadors for Montreal. Our visitors were Lee from Florida, who is here giving a sketching workshop at a conference for university and college graphic designers; Nicky who is attending the conference; and Marie-Odile, arriving from Paris after spending two weeks crossing the Atlantic by cargo ship. We sketched on St. Paul St. in the heart of Old Montreal. It was pretty cold to be outside but we toughed it out for a time until we realized that snowflakes were landing on our sketchbooks and then we headed for a café with an outdoor heater and warm drinks.
