Sun after Snow, Dundas Ontario

8x10 oil on Canvas board
This is an oil sketch that I tried to complete in an hour. I wanted to keep it loose and not labour over details. I took this photo the morning after a big snow storm. This scene is from a house on Melville Street in Dundas.
My new computer finally arrived and after fighting with the set up, I think everything is good to go. I would just like to say that I hate computers..(.not really) but they are such a pain. It is definitely much faster than my poor old dying one...and with all the paraphenalia that comes with blogs and web sites, the speed is necessary when perusing various sites.

You did a great job, you succeeded! Looks loose and painterly!

Well... I agree that they ARE a pain, but I'm afraid I couldn't... well.... wouldn't want to live without one. Are you old enough to remember trying to write reports and papers using a typewriter???

ARGH... probably not, but ... That's a good thing...

One hour? Excellent! Don't know how you did it that fast. The more I paint, the slower I get!
