Paint, paint, paint.

Blomidon December, 2011

In mid December we travelled over to The Minas Basin off the Bay of Fundy for a day of hiking and painting. It was a bitterly cold day, overcast with low cloud and passing showers and flurries. What a beautiful day to paint and I have the luxury of working from the car which on days like this doubles as a mobile studio.

When I move out from the studio I intend to work very quickly. I respond to shape and tone clues in an attempt to capture some aspect of the experience I am immersed in. I work over the entire surface making notes that will define the framework of the work, the air and temperature influencing my view.
