Doorways in the Golden Mile

June 18, 2011

Here’s a couple of doorways I often pass on my morning stroll through the Golden Mile. This posh Montreal neighborhood is situated on the foot of the mountain, overlooking the city center.

It’s full of interesting structures, which Wikipedia describes thusly: “The architecture of the area was an eclectic mix of the Neo-classical, Neo-Gothic, Romanesque, Second Empire, Queen Anne and Art Nouveau – often within the same home.”

    Your sketches are beautiful and full of movement and life. I have only visited Montreal once but I loved the downtown and adjoining neighborhoods.

    you are absolutely incredible! I looove your placement of colour, and the sketches are gorgeous. Buildings aren’t my strong suit but I would love to be able to draw them well. Any suggestions or tips?

      Weeeell, I don’t have too many exciting tips – it’s a classic case of the practice makes perfect. I learned to draw by going to life drawing classes. Drawing a building the same as drawing anything really – the more you do, the better you get :) You could join (or start) a sketchcrawl in your area for a start! http://www.sketchcrawl.com/

        Awesome thanks. Yes I will keep practicing haha. It is true. I usually but most of my time in to drawing people or characters. Buildings it is!

    You are an awesome talent! Do you sell instructional DVD’s? What type of pencil do you sketch with? FANTASTIC!

      heh – well I’m thinking about it :) we did buy a video camera for that :)
      I just use regular pens and pencils like you’d write with, but I use good sable brushes for watercolor. And good paper. The helps a lot…
