Mile End

Mile End

Two sketches today in Mile End - probably my favourite part of Montreal. On the right, a corner of the fire department which is located on the corner of St Laurent and Laurier. This building also houses a Fire fighter's museum, which I have not yet visited. I'll have to go back and sketch more of this building – it is quite an interesting, castle-like place that deserves a much bigger part of the page.

To the left, Fairmount Bagel, an institution in Montreal eating. To maintain bagel-equality, I promise I will sketch St-Viateur Bagel another day. The two are the main Montreal bagel headquarters.

I just switched to the Moleskin watercolour sketchbook – I need to get used to the horizontal format. Today's drawings are a bit squished together.

  1. These look nice! How are you liking the Moleskin watercolor journal? Now I'm hungry for a bagel :)

  2. Thanks Sarah! I'm liking the sketchbook. I actually bought it a year or two ago, but never quite got into the watercolour. With the sketching that I am doing right now, it seems like a good time to try it again. The hardest thing is it's horizontal format - I have to rethink about cropping my drawings.
