Rue Villeray sous la pluie

Shari Blaukopf's Sketchbook

It’s end of semester for me which means lots of grading, tests to prepare, etc., but when I have a free hour or two, I grab it. At lunchtime today, I drove to the Villeray neighbourhood, a favourite area of mine to sketch since the streets are full of life, there’s often parking, and I can find lots of great small buildings to sketch.

Today’s struggle was with the rain. It wasn’t coming down hard enough to be a deterrent, but the light drizzle eventually blocked my view and every few minutes I had to turn the wipers on to clear up the car window. An annoyance, no doubt, but worth it because I was able to finish a sketch during my short break. Sketched on a block of Arches CP, 10″ x 14″.
