East Block

1 Comment


We are staying in Gatineau, Quebec  on Rue Laurier next door to the Canadian Museum of Civilization.
From here we could walk across the Alexandra Bridge to downtown Ottawa. I made a quick sketch of part of the East Block of the Parliament Hill building complex.

Sitting across the street I had to wait every time for tour busses, pedestrians and cars to go by to get a glimpse  of the building, but got this much done before the rain started. It is a busy town with lots of interesting scenery to sketch weather permitting.

  1. An excellent sketch John, I visited Quebec a couple of years ago and wouldn’t have had the guts to tackle the Parliament Building.
