Place d’ArmesPosted: November 2, 2016
I was a bit early for a meeting in Old Montreal today, but with only about half an hour to sketch I realized it would be overly ambitious to work in colour. I haven’t done a pencil sketch in a long time but figured I would probably have enough time to at least get some shape and tone down before the meeting. Using the James Richards method of putting the people in first, I drew the two guys on the left having a smoke and a coffee, and then added in the tour guide telling two ladies about the history of Place d’Armes. The statue of Maisonneuve was next, then with only a short time left I added in the shape of the buildings in the background and off to the meeting I went.
