Painting the painters

I had a great sketching day in Old Montreal with Marc Holmes and brand new Montreal Urban Sketcher Helmut Langeder. We painted amidst all the tourists on Place Jacques Cartier in Old Montreal, and even had our own celebrity spotting of Bob Saget being filmed for the Just for Laughs Festival. The Rue des Artistes is a narrow alley filled with people selling paintings and photos — and since it probably would have required some sort of municipal permit to paint inside there — we sat outside looking in.

    It’s just like that, you’ve captured it so well!

    The streets of Montreal never looked so good!
    The one point perspective draws the eye in, the paintings within a painting are clever and the group of people is so convincing. Although I will comment that you have managed to paint the whole group of people without really painting any single person.

    Captured very well indeed. Too many great things gong on in this sketch for me to list them all. Great composition with the street bustle contrasted with the calm above, and the banner holding the side together… Love it.

    Great “reportage” Shari.
