Drawing for painting :: Dessiner pour peindre

I love drawing and during my class with Marc, he told us many times that if our drawing is not good, the painting will not improve it! So a painting needs good bones — or should I say a good drawing, either in pencil or ink… I myself love to draw in ink so I drew this with grey ink. Now this drawing is ready for painting! I should not have outlined the base of the trees as there is snow that is going there… and I did not outline the bricks of the small shed. The location is the St. James Cemetery in Hudson.

J’aime dessiner et dans le cours à Marc il nous a répété bien des fois que si le dessin n’est pas bon, la peinture ne l’améliorera pas! Donc une peinture doit avoir un bon squelette, ou un bon dessin que je devrais dire. J’aime dessiner à l’encre grise et je n’aurais pas dû délimiter la base des arbres car c’est de la neige qui va là et je n’ai pas contourner les briques de la shed. Cet endroit est le cimetière St-James à Hudson.
