CabouronsPosted: December 11, 2013
Cabourons are the rounded hills in the Kamouraska region of Quebec. I never had a chance to paint them when I was there this summer but I thought they might make a good subject for my second try at oil painting. This attempt is on a smaller canvas (8″ x 8″) and the subject matter is a little more amorphous, allowing me to get used to the paint without worrying about structure. I am not quite sure why I picked a street scene for my first try with this new medium. Foolish idea! Today I felt a little more in control of the colours and the thickness of the paint. I guess I’ll just keep plodding along with this.
