Travel sketch: Downtown Montréal

As a fifteen-year-old, being in Montréal for the first time was an unforgettable experience. I was captivated by the beauty of the old town, its diverse cultural scene, and the distinct meld of European flair and North American optimism. My family had booked a hotel room somewhere along Sherbrooke, between the downtown skyscrapers and the slopes of Mont Royal. Although I did have a camera at the time (one of those tiny ones that used film), something about the city inspired me to record this scene in my sketchbook.

    • Thanks Debra! I guess you can tell that I was already interested in architecture by that point.

  2. Nice sketch! and you managed to capture Montréal’s most famous building. Actually when I was in high school I dreamed of becoming an architect. I used to like to draw crappy sketches of my fantasy buildings 🙂
