Market breakPosted: August 29, 2014
This semester I find myself with a long midday break in my Friday teaching schedule. That means one thing. I have time to get to the Jean Talon Market to sketch! What a great time of year to revisit my favourite Montreal sketching place after a long absence. Abundance is the first word that comes to mind. Overgrown zucchini, boxes of fat tomatoes, the first shiny apples, blueberries ready for jam… it was hard to decide what to sketch. In the end it was determined by what I could see from a spot at the picnic tables where I had a view on all the comings and goings and a place for my coffee as well as my paints.
