Winter sky

If you live in Montreal and are free on Saturday night, come down to the Canadian Centre for Architecture between 7 pm and 1 am for a drawing party. As part of the Nuit Blanche festivities, Marc Taro Holmes and I will be doing giant sketches of Montreal on the walls of the gallery and people are invited to draw on top of our drawings, add to them or just plain create their own. You can read more about the event on USk Montreal.

My painting today is the winter sky seen from the shores of Lac St. Louis in Pointe Claire. A perfectly calming exercise for a Friday afternoon after a long week.

    Wow what a fantastic sky. Beautiful in all its basic quality. I don’t know how often I tried to do something like this, but never with this result.

    Beautiful sky and what a lovely way to end my work week. Between this and your Saturday night Nuit Blanche – I want to move to Montreal. Thank you Shari

    Absolutely beautiful Shari. You have captured the drama and the calm. Glad you were able to find a moment of calm yourself.

    Superb using of watercolors! And I love the dramatic contrast between the horizontal and diagonal lines

    What an amazing sense of depth you have here. That horizon looks miles and miles away. And I like the way you have developed the clouds to aim the viewer’s eye into the painting. I could live with this forever.


  7. Amazing control of sharper details and blending.

    Hmmm… “giant sketches on the walls” with people looking on… are you sure that you can do that? It is possible that your considerable talent and abilities may not extend beyond 30×22? Could be embarrassing with all those people watching. : )
    By the way, great sky!

    Hi Shari, I live on the West coast of Canada and I have really enjoyed your wonderful paintings and the comments you make about them. This painting of the winter sky is wonderful. Thanks so much for your blog.

    So dramatic yet so amazing. A great reminder that we live on an island. Thanks again Shari for sharing its beauties,
