Aujourd'hui, une courte visite au Musée des Beaux-Arts m'a permis de dessiner Le Penseur dans une version très grande. Les nombreux visiteurs m'ont obligé à de fréquents arrêts. J'ai finalement décidé d'ajouter trois admiratrices et les couleurs ont été apposées au retour.

Today, I joined a group of artists who meet to draw in the city every three months. When thre date is settled, the place where the activity will take place is chosen and this happen in many cities in the world. The next day, all the drawings are published on Internet.
We met at the Bonsecours Market. After some words of presentation of the project for the new members, each one left to sketc inside the market or outside in spite of the cold. Fortunately, the sun was shining.

Today, Culture Day, I went as usual each year to see a few members of the Canadian Watercolor Society at the Fine Arts Museum of Montreal. Two musicians, a vilonist and a cellist, were playing marvelously. I could not resist to sketch them...

This week I spent two days of pure joy drawing in the Metropolitan Museum of Arts in New York. As I had received a very beautiful publicity about their collection of arms and armours, I first set my small and light stool in this section.
The following day, I revisited the hall of Greek sculptures and their Roman copies. Always interesting. I could not leave this Museum without admiring again Rodin’s Bourgeois de Calais…
An incursion on the first floor enabled me to go and pay a visit to Rembrandt and his admirors.
Here are the results of these two days.
