:: Fifth of fifth ::

Drawing is the honesty of the art. There is no possibility of cheating. It is either good or bad. (Salvador Dali)

I have been preparing for the Sketch in time event that will be presented at Stewart Hall in Pointe-Claire July 5th, 2015 and the deadline for submitting my five paintings is June 1st so there is not much time left for me to complete this as my schedule is quite heavy nowadays. This is my last painting that I have to do and I drew and inked it on location in Ste. Anne’s on a beautiful sunny day. I will probably go back on Sunday to paint it as the deadline is looming. The Sketch in time — to me — commemorates moments in history, and I chose this subject because of the railroad tracks in Ste. Anne’s as this bridge assembly dates back from 1899. I also like how the footbridge unwinds underneath.
