Hakima at the marketPosted: September 18, 2016
Hakima sells squash at the Jean Talon Market. Not only that. For no extra charge she’ll throw in a recipe or two. She grows the squash in all shapes and colours, including a few I’ve never seen. I’ve missed most of the summer in Montreal so I’m trying to catch up on sketching at the outdoor markets before the season ends. This is the week for tomatoes, if you are planning on making sauce, but I’d rather spend my time sketching. I wish I’d drawn Hakima’s expressive face but I caught her from the back while she was talking to a customer. Sketched in a Stillman & Birn Beta softcover.
