Plein air in Tremblant

I was very lucky to be invited again this year to paint in tremblant along Quebec's talented artists. Michel normandeau was the mastermind of this awesome event. It was to celebrate 100 years of plein air painting where Maurice Cullen and edwin Holgate went to paint. 
This is the whole gang. (From top left) Helmut Langeder, Gabriel, Marie-Claude Courteau, Sue Querles, George Dedoyard, Michel Normandeau, Gordon Harris, Anne Letourneau, Juan Cristobal. (Bottom left) Angelo Galerio, Raynald Murphy, Kim C Pelletier and me. 
First afternoon was about -26c with wind blowing. Almost took out my tripod a couple of times so I decided to paint inside the car. 
8x16. Oil on paper mounted on board. 

Second day was spent at the river cachee. Transportation was done by snowmobile. Got to ride on a trailer towed by the snowmobile. Fun but hard on the behind. 

Last day Sunday, slept in a bit and did a last on a trail beside the lake in old Tremblant, view with the church.
