TrashPosted: February 15, 2017
If I can learn something new every time I paint, I’m happy. Today I discovered the perfect colour for painting trash bags. But let’s back up the story a little first. Why did I choose to paint the trash? The answer is simple. Until the snow from this week’s storm in Montreal gets plowed, it’s hard to find a cleared parking spot with a good view of anything. I didn’t want to pick a scene that was too complex because when those plows do come along, they honk and honk to get you out of their way and good luck finishing the sketch. So I picked a simple scene to paint, and in the process discovered that the leftover Indigo paint I had on my palette was perfect for painting the trash bags.
