About the Book
Take a guided tour of watercolour blogger Shari Blaukopf’s favourite posts, with the accent on Montréal. The book also includes select scenes from across Québec and New England. Each is accompanied by the original blog entry, offering her reflections on the scene, along with tips on technique and process. The sketches and paintings range from her beloved urban and industrial Montreal neighbourhoods to quiet gardens and landscapes, across four seasons. It’s an intensive tour of some of Shari Blaukopf’s best sketches and most incisive observations.
