Sailing lesson

I’ve been parking and sketching near a deserted marina for months so it was great to see the boats out in Pointe Claire yesterday. I sat in the grass to sketch so the view I had of the lake was a bit like a vignette — just a little bit of the lake and the students coming in from their sailing lesson. It was also a great day for catching up with people I haven’t heard from in years including former students, work colleagues and friends who saw the article about the blog in the Montreal Gazette. I still haven’t finished returning emails and phone calls…

    What a beautiful sketch. I hope you will do lots of demos in our workshop. I so want to see how you put your paintings together.

    • Hi Valerie,
      There will be lots of demos at the workshop. I hope to do one each morning and afternoon so a total of 4! And one of those may even be wet-in-wet technique for those that are adventurous.

In a very amateur fashion, but enjoy it.It’s so nice to be a little familiar with some of the places you paint.I was a student at JAC the year it opened..many many years ago.Your art classes sound like fun.

    I sent your blog to my nephew in Niagra who used to live in Set. Annes and teach @ McGill, Macdonald campus. I know he will love it as much as I do!!!

    I love how you simplified the shapes and yet the scene is very realistic.
