Morning on the first day brought rain that continued steady, but, not heavy all day long.
The large gazebos lining the Rue des Carrieres, provided a wonderful view in any direction for plein air painting.
My morning painting included a brilliantly colored foliage tree, something I rarely paint.
I am working with M.Graham oil paints for the first time. Aside from the alkyd medium, to hopefully speed drying some for transport back, I am finding the consistency is working well for me and I don't need turps or other medium.
After a wonderful lunch at a nearby cafe' Relais Place D armes Ltee, we perused a number of galleries. One you may want to visit is Galerie Cimon-35 rue De Buade, and had a chat with Lillian who is very knowledgeable about local artists.
As the rain continued, we sought shelter on the large stone entrance to the Ontario Tourism building and I was able to complete this painting of Monseigneur De Laval, near Rue Port Dauphin.
