Kamouraska workshop day three: one heron and many hensPosted: June 5, 2013
This morning we found the most perfect spot for the workshop: a little lighthouse with views on three sides out onto a spectacular salt marsh. Not only was the vantage point excellent, but there was a table and chairs for everyone to watch this morning’s demo on colour mixing. And just as I was pointing out the window at the colours of the marsh grasses, a great blue heron descended and landed in the marsh. There was a collective gasp.
In the afternoon we moved over to the property of Micro-brasserie Breughel where we had a choice of subjects: a pond, rustic buildings, vistas of landscape and water, and even a henhouse. The day ended with an extensive critique of the day’s work and there was even a bit of time before sunset to get in one last sketch of the beach at low tide.
