2nd plein air outing in Beloeil

Last weekend in Beloeil, I had a chance to go paint with fantastic artists like last year. We had great weather. Here are some pictures of my effort. 
Watercolor I did in the morning. My first since a long time. 
Spent a long time unwrapping the tiny wc blocks. Lol
Behind the church in vieux Beloeil. Tried a sight size technique. Close enough. Hehe
L'eglise vieux Beloeil 9x12 oil
Old houses. Vieux Beloeil

And I finally gave George Dedoyard's portrait to him. :)

Do I know how to paint?

Rabbit sketch 6x8 oil

Everytime I paint, there is always a time or a moment where I struggle. Whether its the drawing, colors or tones not looking right. I always turn back to a quote by Edgar Degas, "Painting is easy when you don't know how, but very difficult when you do. "

Drawing event in Montreal

A friend told me about this event so we checked it out... 4 hours of life drawing...11 models, 5 scenes...I think over 150 artists +/- jammed pack into a warehouse...It was cool. Here are some drawings...

Tremblant plein air

This is my very first ever winter plein air! I was invited by a good friend and mentor Michel Normandeau and ville de Mont Tremblant to go paint around Tremblant. There was about 18- 20 artists all together. It was a real experience! Paint was a lot stiffer in the cold. But we were lucky to get a bit more milder weather that weekend. It feels a lot colder when you are just standing there and painting. Here are some pictures...
