Toronto City Hall is an iconic symbol of the city and the large square in front presents a comfortable venue to sketch with plenty of food vendors and coffee.
Art galleries and museums offer many opportunities to sketch in relative comfort.
The Art Gallery of Ontario has a large and diverse collection of art including a gallery dedicated to these Henry Moore plaster casts.
This painting is an example of Italian baroque style feature by realism and the use of intenselight and shadow.. I tried to capture some of that.
I saw the tower of this building from a distance and thought it was a bank but it turns out this combination of art deco and gothic revival is a government office building. The progressive set backs, the strong vertical elements and the many statues ( 12 I think ) all carved in stone give it a romantic era monumental and sculpural quality.
Toronto has a lot of historic structures and I hope tosketch more of them someday,
