An unlikely sightPosted: August 23, 2016
I can’t believe school has started already. It doesn’t seem fair to be back when summer is still casting a warm glow over Montreal. My only consolation is that I can sneak away on breaks and sketch on campus. I haven’t held a paintbrush in my hand for weeks so the complex architecture on campus was a little too much for me. When I spotted this girl sitting quietly on a bench, the simplicity of the scene seemed just right. Unlike most of her schoolmates checking out their phones around her, she was reading. That is so unusual that I watched her for a while to make sure. And sure enough she seemed to be enjoying a book, oblivious to the lunchtime commotion around her. It was a treat to watch and to sketch.
