A place to paint the seasons :: Un endroit pour peindre les saisons

A few months ago I found a place that lent itself well for painting the different seasons that we have here in Québec, Canada. So here is my mountain, where I live, and which is very inspiring in many ways for a painter and gives me a quality of life that is extremely agreeable. It is the first time that I use the wonderful Saunders Waterford HP hot pressed paper… up to now I have always used cold pressed, which is more textured. The hot pressed paper is extremely smooth, and ideal for drawing with a fountain pen.

Il y a quelques mois j’ai trouvé un endroit qui se donne bien pour peindre les différentes saisons que nous avons ici au Québec, Canada. En plus, c’est la montagne où je vis et qui m’apporte beaucoup en tant que peintre et pour la qualité de vie. C’est la première fois que j’utilise le papier Saunders Waterford pressé à chaud qui est très lisse et agréable pour tirer les traits avec la plume fontaine. J’ai toujours utilisé du papier pressé à froid auparavant, qui est bien plus texturé.

Paper: Saunders Waterford HP 12″ x 9″
Colours: French Ultramarine, Raw Sienna and Quinacridone Burnt Orange
Fountain Pen: Pilot Flexi Grip EF
Ink: Noodlers’ Lexington Grey
