Half roadPosted: March 7, 2015
What is it about this street in Lachine that attracts me to sketch here? It’s probably a combination of things. First of all, there’s the mysterious perspective that pulls you in and makes you wonder what’s lurking on the other side of that hill. Secondly, it’s the shape of the sky formed by the buildings — a shape that’s broken up in an interesting way by the utility poles. Thirdly — and this is something I only realized after I scanned the sketch — is the pattern of wires that knit both sides of the street together. And the last reason is one I’ve talked about before, when I painted in this spot for the first time in 2012. If you are curious, you can read about it here.
