Four Barns :: Quatre granges

I asked my Mom the other day which of my paintings that she preferred and she told me Memoirs of Hadrian. As I had painted it in a small sketchbook, I had to paint it again… and again… and again, as I could not tear off one of my pages in the sketchbook. Now suffice to say that this is the final version. It is funny how drawing on location is so different from painting from a photograph… alive compared to uni-dimensional. I painted this on Saunders Waterford HP (Hot Pressed) paper and it is a very smooth paper, compared to all of the bumps that we encounter with CP (Cold Pressed).

J’ai demandé à ma mère quelle peinture qu’elle préférait de toutes les peintures que j’ai faites… et elle a indiqué Memoirs of Hadrian. Étant donné que je ne voulais pas défaire mon cahier à croquis en enlevant une page, j’ai décidé de lui repeindre les quatre granges… encore… encore… et encore. C’est vraiment drôle comment différent l’acte de peindre en plein-air et peindre d’une photo. Peindre en plein-air est vivant… d’une photo, quasiment mort… unidimensionnel. J’ai peint cette photo sur du papier Saunders Waterford HP qui est sublime! 

Paper: Saunders Waterford 140 lbs HP 12″ x 9″
