Under the bridgePosted: February 2, 2014
The rail bridge in Ste. Anne de Bellevue figured in a few of my summer paintings but with some fresh snow on the ground this morning I thought I’d tackle it again from my car studio. I left the house with a block of 9″ x 12″ Arches Rough paper. I don’t paint much on rough but I liked it. I just couldn’t figure out why it was buckling so much until I got home and realized it was 90 lb paper — much thinner than what I’m used to working on. My car heater came in handy between washes and once I dried the buckling areas I could easily go back into them. And just as I was almost done, as if on cue, this elderly couple walked right down the road for me.
