Rue St. SulpicePosted: May 21, 2013
Do you ever start a sketch and realize that the paper you are working on should be twice the size it is? That happens to me often. Today I had a few minutes between errands in Old Montreal to draw a view down rue St. Sulpice, next to l’Église Notre Dame. My intention was to draw the spires at the back of the church and then have a view down the hill, past the old buildings, right down to the pier. But I ran out of paper on the left and didn’t manage to capture the depth I wanted to. I probably should have waited for another day when I have more time but since the rain drowned out all outdoor sketching opportunities in New York City, I had to get in a quick one today.
