Spring on St. UrbainPosted: February 5, 2016
It’s almost warm enough to sketch outside. In early February?? Seems very unusual for Montreal. In fact, I think the grass is even greening up in some southern facing exposures. With a bit of time to sketch this morning, I found a window seat in a café on St. Viateur, facing north on St. Urbain (with my favourite rooftop water reservoir in the distance). I don’t think the brownstones are quite as colourful as this, but maybe the warmth, the sunny day and the strolling crowds had me thinking that spring may be closer than we think.
