The house that Jack builtPosted: May 12, 2014
This evening I gave a little talk to the Lachine Artists Association. In advance of the event, I prepared the drawing of the nearby Resurrection of Our Lord Parish on site, and then painted indoors in front of the group, using a triad of primary colours (Alizarin, Azo and Ultramarine). It’s always a bit stressful doing these demos because you never know if you’ll be successful, or run into painting problems and humiliate yourself in front of everyone, especially when you are trying to paint from memory. To add to the pressure I found out about halfway through the evening that the pastor was in the audience, keeping a watchful eye on how I painted his church. I hope I did it justice, Father Jack.
