Chemin St-Thomas

Every time that I bring my dog to the “daycare” I pass in front of these grain silos… and every time I tell myself that I should paint these… so after cleaning the house this morning, I picked up the paints and went. So for this drawing I began by drawing the landscape with a 0.7 mm mechanical pencil by Pentel and then I painted. In the end, I retraced some of the lines with my Pilot FlexiGrip EF fountain pen.

À chaque fois que j’apporte mon chien à la garderie, je passe en-avant de ces silos de grains et à chaque fois, je me dis que je devrais les peindre… donc les voici. -)

  1. Effectivement Jane, tu as bien réussi le point de fuite! As-tu aimé ton atelier avec Marc Holmes? Il semble vraiment bon pédagogue!


    1. Merci Lynn — Marc a été superb! Tellement que je me suis inscrite à un cours de 10 semaines avec lui à Montréal… j’ai hâte -) Juste ce que je me recomandais auparavant… LOL!


    1. Thank you Agnes? It took me a couple of tries before getting the vanishing point… phew! Luckily I do a series of compositional thumbnails beforehand and also a couple of value sketches. So this prevents major errors along the path — yeah! So I am really glad if the perspective works ’cause I really struggled with it.
