Kamouraska day 4 :: Jour 4 Kamouraska

This was our last day of painting in Kamouraska and Shari chose to stay in the village to let us paint the architectural details of this very quaint village or simply paint the views. In the morning we painted the rocks and the views on the east side of the village behind the Resto L’Amuse-Bouche (where they serve tapas). (I still have to finish this painting before posting it… should do it this coming weekend). In the afternoon we painted behind the Café Côté Est. I did not paint in the afternoon… I just looked and looked and looked… and breathed in… and breathed in the salty air filled with odours of algae. Ohmmmmm ;-) These are thumbnails of compositional and tonal values that I did of the views that I had sitting on the porch at the Breughel Microbrewery. Mmmmm…

Au petit matin de notre dernière journée à Kamouraska on a peint en-arrière du Resto L’Amuse-bouche. Les rochers et la pointe de Kamouraska ont été peints (je vais poster cette peinture plus tard cette fds car je ne l’ai jamais finie) et en après-midi nous avons peint en-arrière du Café Côté Est. Moi je n’ai pas peint… j’ai simplement regardé l’estuaire et regardé et regardé l’estuaire… encore et encore…  et j’ai pris de grands respirs de cet air salin ayant une senteur distinctive d’algues marines… ohmmmmmm ;-) Quel bonheur! Donc je vous offre des petits croquis de mes compositions de la journée précédente à la Microbrasserie Breughel.
