Dimanche matinPosted: January 14, 2019
Carré St. Louis is Montreal’s grandest square. If you’ve walked through it, you know what I mean. It’s surrounded by stately Victorian houses which I’ve sketched in the past, but I’ve never painted it in winter. Since the day was quite overcast I used a limited palette for the soft winter colours — mostly Raw Umber, Burnt Sienna, Cerulean Blue and Ultramarine Blue. Of course for the garland of plastic blooms that adorns the gazebo, I dipped my brush into pure yellow and red. Painted wet-in-wet on a half sheet of Arches 140 lb rough paper, 15″ x 22″.
