Three houses on Lakeshore

I pass these houses all the time but when you are driving by you never see the details. Fortunately it’s warm enough to be outside now and there is a small green space on the waterfront with lots of shade to set up my easel. Just as I was finishing my painting the woman who lives in the house came ambling up the walk and spent a bit of time examining something on the porch but by then my darks were painted and it was too late to add her in.  Painted on Arches 300 lb cold-pressed paper, 15″ x 11″.

    Shari, I’ve enjoyed seeing your paintings of Montreal so much that it’s now on my long list of places to visit some time. The Chamber of Commerce should be supporting you!
    Love all the greens in this one and those wonderful shadows.
