Mount Royal Cemetary
Today was a rare winter treat. Cold, but brilliantly clear. Not something we get that often. We’ve just had a fresh 20 centimeter snowfall, along with some freezing rain. That combination creates a beautiful effect, snow clinging to the windward side of trees, huge icicles everywhere, windowsills and roof lines softened with stiff snowy blankets.
It seemed like a perfect day to visit the Mount Royal Cemetery.
I’m not a huge fan of winter, but I have to admit, it can show you an unmatched beauty. There were photographers and hikers on snowshoes passing by all day, enjoying the amazing transformation. This was about a 90 min sketch, done from the car. I’m glad my friend Shari introduced me to Urban Canadian Car Painting. I might not be so happy with the drawing, had I tried it ‘en plein air’.
