A Canadian In Paris ...10" x 12" ...O/P
It was a beautiful eleven day visit in the capital of France and countryside.
Many of the usual touristy places were visited and a mixture of the unexpected. I did visit the Musee d'Orsay to view at first hand the original paintings of the well known French Impressionists. A dream come true ! One could spend days there viewing and studying these works. You would have loved it !
I also visited with my granddaughter, who is studying in Paris this year. Anytime one can do that, it is special !
This painting is on a Masonite panel that has been prestained with a couple of coats of "runny, pinkish oil colour" over two coats of gesso. The runny colour was evaporated with a hot hairdryer, leaving a thin coating of colour to air dry.
My palette was my now regular limited palette. To this palette, I added a light lime green.
This particular piece was painted using a photo reference.
