I was happy to learn that the Montreal Urban Sketchers were meeting on Sunday, my second last day in Montreal. I have never managed to get to one of their gatherings–and this one, at the Biblioteque Nationale, was very appealing as it is a beautiful building. In reading about it, I discovered that it is the most frequented library in North America! Once I got there, I could understand why so many people want to spend time there. Besides the magnificent collection, there were all kinds of spots to curl up and work. There were over thirty urban sketchers at 10:00 a.m. and we spread out in the comfortable chairs beside the huge windows with a view to the backs of the buildings on St. Denis.
Yesterday I had a little time before my train so I sat in the window seat of a delightful tiny cafe and sketched my madchiato and the view across the street.
