Parallel universePosted: July 12, 2015
Here’s something cool. There’s a whole other group of people who paint and sketch outdoors on Sundays in the summer, and it’s not Urban Sketchers. They set up easels on the Canal right by the St. Gabriel Locks every second Sunday in the summer. The group is organized by the Montreal Art Centre, and if you are interested you can even reserve an easel and a table. I joined them today to paint, sketch and watch the cyclists going by along the canal. They’re a really nice group, and if you want to find out more, check them out here. The views at the spot where they gather are pretty interesting too, especially if you like the overlapping mix of decaying industrial buildings and new condo complexes. Our Urban Sketchers group isn’t meeting again until August but if you want to meet the other group, their next outing is on July 26th.
