Square Victoria

Square Victoria

Sketching on Saturday at the south entrance to Square Victoria metro station. I managed to get the sketch done without mittens - there is hope that Spring is coming.

I admit, I am a bit partial to the metro system. Most Montrealers think I'm weird. They always ask me, why don't you take the bus? or tell me about how there is a bus line I could take the would get me there faster. But after years of living out west* where the metro line is less developed and bus lines never connected to anything, I still find the Montreal system quite the novelty. Even after 11 years.



* I'm sure western canadian public transportation has evolved since then. But hours of waiting for the bus in the freezing cold over the years has left its scar.

  1. Love this Jen for its winter feel - the bare trees, snow on the ground and passersby all in warm clothes adds to the scene so nicely.

  2. Thanks Chantal!

    And think, people were actually wearing less layers and the snow had melted quite considerably!

    (I'm sure we'll get at least on more dumping of snow before the end of the season!)
