Here is the steeplePosted: October 15, 2014
The very best days for sketching in the fall are the ones where the bright foliage is set against a deep blue overcast sky. This morning there was a downpour just as I was leaving to sketch but it didn’t last long and what remained were some big dark clouds looming behind the steeple of St. Joachim in Pointe Claire. My time was limited so I decided on a view of the school with the church in the background and the tops of some trees. In hindsight, I think I should have used a rectangular book instead of square. The vertical format would have allowed me to put in some foreground and the base of the trees which would have grounded the composition.
