Sketching on Sunday. Took me a while to get it painted - most of it was done from memory. In Montreal, the sun starts to set around 3pm in the winter. That was about the time when I finished drawing and was ready to paint.
Villeray is what they considered a "working class" neighbourhood - it was founded during the industrial era. There are lots of apartment blocks like this - lots of stairs and awnings over balconies.
