La Grande Bibliotheque. Definitely the best place to draw from in Montreal.
Does this sound good?
• A great long corridor with floor to ceiling windows and a view of the backs of the buildings on St. Denis
• Comfortable arm chairs facing the view
• Low tables for sketching gear
• Permission to draw
• A sandwich shop on site
• No admission charge
• Metro access
We will certainly be going back there.
I wasn’t happy with the first drawing I did this morning so with under 30 minutes left before lunch, I started this one. Since the view was largely monochrome I used markers to get the tones down quickly because they cover lots of surface area in a short amount of time and dry instantly.
