Le Rivoli

Le Rivoli

I had some errands to do today and since it was sunny I tried to get in a quick sketch (quick – it was -11°C today, feeling like -18°C with the windchill). Tomorrow is back to snow by the look of the forecast.

This is my local Pharmaprix, corner of rue Bélanger on rue St-Denis. This building originally opened in 1926 as the Le Rivoli cinema. It has a classical style to it, which begged to be sketched for a while. So chic for a drugstore.

On the north side of the corner is another former Art Deco-style cinema, Le Château, that I will have to sketch when it gets warmer. The more detailed of the two, I'll need more time to sketch it!

Colour was added once back home.
