Montreal Airport

I spent a couple of days in Montreal this week. They were busy days as usual with no time to focus on the arts. Montreal is full of art. Not only its wonderful museums, but every nook and cranny of the city has or is a work of art.

It wasn't until I was at the airport heading back to the Big Smoke (AKA Toronto) that I had a few minutes for myself. The view from the airport of the mountain that gives Montreal its name was interesting as a vista far away. I had to sketch it... here is the quick result. I had less than 10 minutes to do it so the composition is not the best, but at least I didn't comeback without a sketch!


  1. Very cute - it's definitely a Montreal skyline. Love the colours you chose

  2. Lovely light. It has a feeling of energy in it.

  3. That's such a wonderful sketch of the mountain and St. Joseph's Oratory! (I live an hour from Montreal and you're so right about it being a great place for the arts. And for so much more.) Love your sketches!

  4. Thank you all for your comments. It's so nice to know someone actually reads and views my blog.

    Off to the Okanagen and Vancouver this week. I hope I have time to sketch along the way.
