Wandering Eye

June 2, 2011

Just an old fashioned sketchcrawal. Walking around downtown Montreal with my buddy Jens Claessens, just drawing whatever we happen to run across.

(The Redpath Museum, Place Phillips Square (behind the Hudsons Bay), and the old Ecole Des Beaux Arts on Sherbrooke and St. Urbain).

And then somehow, we ended up on the back side of City Hall, without ever seeing the front entrance. They have been doing some work on city hall – and right now, the roof is a dark reddish brown, instead of the normal green patina. I wonder if they’re going to restore it to the weathered finish? or let nature take it’s course. It doesn’t match the photos on the side of the tour buses anymore!

By the way – I’ll be out of town for about a week – so I’ll try and post while I’m away – but we’ll see what we can get for wireless on the road hey?
