McDonald Campus à Ste-Anne-de-Bellevue

Une peinture que j’ai commencée au début juin et que je n’avais pas eu le temps de finir… il restait les ombres et quelques détails à faire. Un ciel jaune, faut le faire, huh? La raison est qu’on travaillait avec des “tonalités” donc le choix des couleurs devait être hors de l’ordinaire ou de la réalité pour comprendre le concept. La voici, la voilà ;-)
Here is a painting that I did at Shari’s workshop that I still had not finished… some details and shadows needed to be added in. This was a wet-on-wet painting, meaning that both sides of the paper were wet thoroughly and only then was it ready for painting. Very different results from painting on dry paper.

The size of this painting is quite big so I had to stitch it in Photoshop. For those of you who do not know how to do this, here are a few simple steps.
1. Scan document (2-3-4 tiles);
2. Open Bridge and select all images;
3. Open in Camera Raw;
4. Click again on both images;
5. Synchronize;
6. Select everything from the pop-up window and click “done”
7. Tools->Photoshop->Photomerge;
8. Auto;
9. Flatten image;
10. Adjust image as you wish;
11. Voilà!

    Glad that my paintings are a reminder to the past — the silos are beautiful, are they not? Me too they remind me of my younger years. Thanks Dad!

    Jane, When I was a young boy (when I was 14-15), a friend’s father was the manager of the Moco Farm and we spent a lot of time there – your drawing is the exact reminder of what existed many,many years ago. The silos were full of chopped corn ready to feed the 80+ milk cows on the farm. Keep up the beautiful work , history in the making.
