By chance

By chance I found a new place to draw today. I was trying to drive south on a main thoroughfare in Montreal but the road signs were ambiguous and I ended up going east instead. That lead me through a part of town where I had never been and I discovered a great café.

By chance they had a free seat at the counter by the window. I love those spots because you have an unobstructed view of the neighbourhood.

By chance it snowed last night and there was still a sprinkling on the ground. Everything looks better with a sprinkling of snow.

    Wow,this is great! You have now become a member of the Pete Scully Fire Hydrant Sketchers Club!
    Pete will be jealous as there is no snow in Davis,CA. Love the colors.

    Looks good. Better than being in the car, and there must be a hundred of these little cafes in Montreal… many with convenient seats near a window. So, did you do two sketches while you were there? …you should have had plenty of time as you only had to paint half of the page. : )


    • There are many of these cafés in Montreal and this is a lot better than sitting in my car. I never got around to installing that espresso machine in the passenger seat.
      And yes, I did in fact do another one. I may just post that tomorrow. Still needs a bit of work.

    Impressionnant Shari.
    We feel the metal and we really SEE the chains and the snow!.
