I had some downtime while attending the Montreal International Game show at the Bonaventure Hotel. The office tower nest door has helpfully lined up their lobby with the central dome of the Marie Rienne du Monde Cathedral. There's a six story atrium created so the windows can offer a perfectly framed view of the copper dome.
security guard came by and checked what I was drawing. He said if I'd
been sketching the lobby interior he would have had to throw me out, but
the cathedral alone was fair game. Very strange. So if you're sketching
around downtown Montreal, make sure to only sketch beautiful old
churches, never never draw glass windows or shiny chrome escalators.
is done with water and Lamy pens again. My current favorite 'take
anywhere' kit. The color is an interesting artifact of the scanner on my
cheap Cannon five-in-one office printer. Everything useful in the
studio is packed for a move, so I used this silly thing. It introduced
these weird color shifts into the scan, which I chose to ramp up in
Photoshop:) Neat hey?
