Chocolatier MarlainPosted: February 11, 2013
Maybe I was thinking of Valentine’s Day when I headed towards this little chocolate shop in Pointe Claire village, although now that I look at the final painting I think it might have been Hallowe’en instead. I painted this same building last year when there was just a sprinkling of snow on the ground. It was hard to find contrast in the overcast light today: white house, light sky, snow on the ground and no shadows, so when I added the tree I think it gave it a little drama.
Painted from my car on Fabriano Artistico cold pressed paper, 140 lb, 9″ x 12″.
