K and I had a wonderful time in Montreal, though it was way too short to even begin to see and do all that we wanted. She gives a lively account in her new blog of the trip, with lots of great photos.
I sketched as and when I could. You knew I'd find fountains. The fountain on rue Saint Sulpice in Montreal features trappers, dogs, and explorers, as opposed to the cardinals and mythic creatures of the fountain at Saint-Sulpice in Paris. We saw the Yves Saint Laurent exhibition at the Musée des Beaux Arts, which was stunning. I have another sketch from that show to share. We took a bateau mouche tour of the Saint Lawrence river and we visited the Jardin Botanique, one of the largest in the world. I have more sketches to post and will do so in the next couple of days. Then it's back to painting paintings---of rocks and water, what else?
