Sound of the pondPosted: May 26, 2017
The pond next to City Hall in Baie d’Urfé is one of my favourite places to paint. Even though it’s situated fairly close to a busy road and a noisy bus stop, when I paint there I hear nothing of the traffic going by. My brain tunes out everything except the call of the red-winged Blackbirds and the burbling of the water. A little oasis, really. It’s not a huge pond but there’s a little stream that leads from one pool to another, a spot under the trees for my easel, and a fountain in case I run out of painting water. Painted wet-in-wet on Arches paper, 15″ x 11″.
