On thin icePosted: March 22, 2022
There’s no boats in the water yet in Pointe Claire, but I can see people working on them in the boatyard. That gives me something to look forward to. In the meantime, the breakwater has a little interest with a few good shapes and colours with which to create a composition — the deep blue water, the little bits of remaining ice, and a greenish rim of slush where the snow is slowly melting. There’s not much going on until two geese fly in. I can hear them before I see them. I’ve already started to add colour, but I grab my pencil and add them in as they gingerly tread across the ice.
