Bellevue House

I didn't have time to sketch this weekend, but here's one from last Saturday, when I wandered over to Bellevue House. It used to be the home of Sir John A Macdonald, Canada's first prime minister. Now it's a national historic site. This is not the usual view of it. There are turrets and Victorian thingummies and interesting angles and bits of woodwork, all ripe for drawing. But I ended up with this view because I only had a few minutes to spare, and there was a conveniently-placed bench in the shade! I'll go back and try the trickier stuff sometime, when I have time and a sun-hat and my sketching stool.
