Maison SmithPosted: June 2, 2014
A few weeks ago our USk Montreal group met at Maison Smith to sketch on the mountain but it was so crowded that there was no viewpoint to see the building through the cars and people. Marc Holmes and I went back to the mountain again today and spent a bit of time at the end of the day sketching Maison Smith, without the cars and crowds. Marc painted a spectacular panorama on two sheets of watercolour paper, especially impressive because he went straight to brush with no pencil lines at all. I don’t have that kind of confidence with architecture so I started with a bit of pencil. The light was pretty flat when we started out but the sun came out near the end of our time there and gave me a few shadows to work with. Painted on Fabriano 140 lb paper, 10″ x 13″.
