McGill Medical Sciences Building

It has been a few weeks since I sketched this building during a visit to downtown Montreal. I went to the McGill University campus and parked on Pine Street. Lots of late XIX and early XX century houses to sketch around, but I went for the McIntyre Medical Sciences Building, a 16 storey concrete tower built in 1965.

One more view of the backyard. This would be the last one where the trees are bare. It was drawn before the trip, but couldn't post it before with all the hassle to get ready to go abroad. This week the trees are in full bloom, the scilla (little blue flowers) are gone and the dandelions have invaded the lawn.

Riviera Maya


Riviera Maya, a set on Flickr.

Back from a one week vacation to the Riviera Maya, in Mexico. I was dying to dive head first in the turquoise waters nearby the Tulum archeological site and got my wish. I am so grateful that I was granted the opportunity to go back to one of the most beautiful places on Earth. I wish there had been more time for sketching... To my surprise, back at the hotel, there was a small temple at the hotel beach. It is a little construction known as "el nicho" which is very similar to the God of the Winds Temple at Tulum. It stands on a large rock in the middle of a small bay and there are many palapas nearby to comfortably sit and draw.
