Save the date for Stewart Hall

It’s going to be a busy spring/summer for Urban Sketchers Montreal (I admit I am happily looking forward to anything with the word summer in it). In May we have Draw me a Mountain, a sketch day and exhibition on Mount Royal and now I’m happy to announce a similar event for early summer. On July 5, Urban Sketchers Montreal has been invited to a sketch day and exhibition at Stewart Hall — Pointe-Claire’s Cultural Centre situated in a gorgeous historic mansion on the shore of Lake St-Louis. It is an absolutely stunning spot to sketch, in all seasons! Together with Marc Taro Holmes, Jane Hannah and Raynald Murphy, I will be exhibiting sketchbooks and framed works from July 5 to August 30 in the Project Room of the Stewart Hall Gallery. Everyone is invited to sketch with us on that day and display sketches in a group vernissage at the end of the day. Hopefully the weather will be great, and all the snow that I sketched on the grounds this morning will be gone. More details to follow soon.

    I love this one – especially that tree in the foreground – absolutely beautiful! I like the drawing, the texture, the shadows, and the warmth of it in contrast to the cold snow. Bravo – another winner!

    I decided to comment on this one rather than “Farm Melt” which was very good but got too busy with all those comments.
    I really like these little snow scenes and particularly the modelling of the tree branches… which I should add are very different to the branches in FM.

    • Yes, Farm Melt was really messy. You wouldn’t want to get involved in all that.
      I did enjoy painting the branches in both of these. I guess you don’t have too many trees that look like this in Australia, unless they are dead.

      • Ross says:

        On the contrary, last time I looked that is pretty much what our trees looked like… trunks on the bottom, sitting on the ground and branches on top…

    Love the promise of future warmth in those shrubs.. It has been a hard winter. I LOVE this painting!

    I love it Shari and it will be nice sketching in the West Island and closer to home -)))
