St. Louis Square :: Carré St-Louis ::

In watercolour, if you are not in trouble, then you’re in trouble. — Selma Blackburn I most often paint in sketchbooks and when I do, it is impossible to tear off the page to keep the painting as this would ruin the sketchbook… and I would not want to as the sketchbooks are a fantastic legacy of looking back at your work, in chronological order. To me they are worthless as each drawing or painting or sketch reminds me of that instance. There are many paintings that I would like to “repaint” on bigger sheets of watercolour and this is one of them. I originally painted this one in 2013. Je peins la majorité du temps dans des carnets de croquis et souvent, il y a des peintures que j’aimerais refaire sur un plus grand format de papier aquarelle… et en voici un exemple. On pourrait penser que je pourrais simplement déchirer une feuille de mon carnet, mais ceci ruinerait le carnet car les feuilles deviendraient lousses mais surtout je perdrais l’ordre chronologique de tout ce que j’ai fait en peinture ou dessin ou croquis.
