Rue BeaudoinPosted: November 5, 2015
It’s a great view up Rue Beaudoin in St. Henri because of the mountain backdrop, which, during these Indian summer days is looking very soft and almost glowing. This week I’m happy to be working with a really big, flat brush for most of my sketch. It’s liberating after weeks and weeks of having a cramped hand from fine pen work. The cobalt teal that leaked in my palette is giving me some interesting things to think about as well. Moving away from local colour and using this new triad forces me to focus more on strong shapes and values, rather than local colour. I’ll keep going with this as long as I can to see where these colour combos take me.
