Sketches: A Sainte Anne & Senneville Outing

I’m posting some sketches from some quieter moments during a busy as well as relaxing, enjoyable, weekend.

The first is from an early dinner I had Sunday at a restaurant called Dundees on the boardwalk in Sainte Anne de Bellevue. The meal? Eh. I had a fish plate but it’s probably best to just get a burger and fries at a place like this. It’s not enjoyable eating food that’s sub-par but at least I had a nice place to contemplate that. I sketched this before the food came out.

After dinner, I drove through Senneville and stopped at a park on the water to do more sketching. I believe this is the first time I’ve sketched from here. It was so peaceful and serene.  I should come here more often.

Oh. I almost forgot about this. Earlier on Sunday morning, I was bicycling around the area and saw this fellow setting up to paint. It looked like he was going to paint the small, brick out-building there, but surely he was going to paint sailboats at the yacht club (Pointe Claire). I did come back about 2 hours later to see if I could see the results, but he was just pulling out in his car when I returned. Ah well. It shall forever remain a mystery.

    What a totally bizarre place to set up…

    Yes! It does look odd, right? But, of course, if he was painting what was directly in front of him, then the easel, etc. would be in his way. I think he painted that sailboat to the left, looking past his shoulder.

    Quebec has never had a good rep when it comes to fish and seafood-y things. Best stick to the coast (west or east) for that.
