Little Burgundy

We had single digit temperatures, a dirty sky, and on and off rain but Urban Sketchers Montreal was undeterred. I think that after the interminable winter that seems to be lingering into spring, we were happy to be outdoors. The sketching route involved a trek through Little Burgundy (famous for producing jazz musicians Oliver Jones and Oscar Peterson!), with stops to sketch the Korean Catholic Mission, some historic sandstone buildings, antique shops along the way and several warm coffee houses. The neighbourhood is like much of the areas south of downtown — cranes and condos developments are the backdrop to the old industrial buildings. There’s much to sketch for the hardy.

This is gorgeous, Shari! Wonderful feeling of atmosphere, and love the harmony of those grays with the bright pops of yellow and violet.
