I live on the Gatineau River. I never get enough of the view. This painting was based on a photo of a sunrise in December of 2017. It is my first painting with acrylics. I used black marker to enrich the tree details.
Geese Sanctuary is my second painted photograph, created for a friend. I learned the technique from Stella Pagani at her Vortex Art Studio in Wakefield Quebec. In this work I used watercolours and pastel. The finished work was too large for my scanner, so I stitched two scans together using the free Microsoft Image Composite Editor (ICE). I cleaned up minor discontinuities using the open source GIMP healing tool.
