Silo No 5Posted: July 4, 2012
I haven’t painted anything industrial in quite some time and I was really missing it. So when Marc Taro Holmes suggested we meet in Old Montreal to sketch near this spot I was quite excited because I have been wanting to get a good look at Silo No 5. It was only after I returned home and did a bit of research that I learned that this is yet another building on Heritage Montreal’s endangered list.
Marc and I are preparing our August workshop in Portland, Oregon and Marc is also one of the instructors at the Urban Sketchers Symposium we both will be attending in Santo Domingo next week. We spent most of the day today sketching at various locations in the Old Port and with the high heat and humidity I think it was good practice for both of us.
