Italian Week. The last Saturday of the celebration was the Ferrari parade. You could walk down St-Laurent (in the Italian quarter) and see all the Ferraris out for show. Part of the parade was a smaller selection of Fiats. I like those little cars - they have such curves and the vintage colours are great.
This painting is another exercise from the book One Drawing A Day. Try doing a painting by building layers of colour, without lines. If you want to see a pro at this style, check of the work of Omar Jaramillo (Portfolio / Flickr). He is great at capturing a scene.
