Kamouraska workshop day two: wind

The excitement of painting outdoors in a maritime location is dealing with the unexpected. Quickly changing weather conditions and high winds are something you rarely encounter in urban settings. Today we painted all day on the pier facing the village and I have to say that despite a wind that chilled us to the bone, everyone toughed it out and produced some amazing work. My morning demo was of the rocks below the pier at low tide and we ended the day with Jane’s presentation of her wonderful fountain pen collection. Tomorrow’s challenge: colour.

  1. It’s fascinating to see the light in the photographs alongside the light in your picture. You really captured how bright the day was.

    You guys look soooo cold! You make me feel cold just looking at the photos and it is 20C outside here today (also, good to see you found a photographer other than yourself!).
    Your demo is pretty impressive given the conditions… the rocks are really well modeled and that splash of tan colour near the centre of the painting just draws my eye. The houses are very convincing even though, when you look closely, they are quite loose. And, good to see that you partly concealed the cars… that really helps. : )

    • I’m not really sure how I managed that day. The wind was relentless and I kept on painting while the others had lunch. At the end of the day we were all pretty exhausted from trying to keep warm in that weather.

  3. Maybe intentional or not, but the texture of the paper seems to be showing through on the lower right section of the painting, where the soil is, adding a nice bit of texture overall.
