Black and white canopyPosted: January 26, 2016
The last time I painted on rue Henri Julien was in the fall when the trees formed a yellow canopy over the street. This morning we had a sprinkling of fresh snow and I was hoping that I could paint there again but the weather was not on my side. By the time I parked the thermometer had moved up, and the snow turned to rain so I drew instead. I’m not sorry I drew this in pen though, because I think the dismal day and the soggy snow may come across better in black and white than in colour.
