On thin ice

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.

    Such clean fresh washes…as always! I especially like the sky.

    What a beautiful serene painting. Perfect. Just a lot of pleasure looking at it and taking in the scene.


  3. The sky and the puddles make this for me! And the geese just add to the fun. Thanks for sharing!
