Brick and stonePosted: May 31, 2012
Here’s the second painting from my afternoon in Old Montreal. I chose this view of the Les Prêtres de Saint-Sulpice (which by the way is Montreal’s oldest building) because I loved the layering of the brick buildings behind it and the late afternoon shadows. Unlike my friend Marc, who can just set himself up and start a painting (something I greatly admire), I have to do a few faster sketches first and calm down a bit before I can launch into something more ambitious. This was painted on Fabriano soft press paper in under two hours because that was the time I had in my parking meter.
