Corner of Atwater and Ste. Catherine

I arrived downtown a little early today before my talk at the Atwater Library, and as luck would have it I found a window seat at the McDonalds with a view of the condo construction at the site of the former Montreal Children’s Hospital. The rapidly falling snow muted all the colours in this downtown scene, so I sketched in Payne’s Grey in my Etchr sketchbook. It was the perfect way to relax and collect my thoughts before the talk.

    Having lived previously in Montreal and wish I still did – I just love this painting or sketch. Love it. Sue

    Having grown up in southern Ontario, this is so familiar- cool, sunless light. Perfectly captured. Think I’ll have to dig out my Payne’s gray again, yours seems a very neutral version. I think mine is more blue. They all seem to be different.
