Becoming a Sunday Afternoon Painter

This gateway to the Far North, Great Whale River is a picturesque coastal town set in the combined regions of the Boreal Forest and the Tundra of the Far North in Quebec.

What better place to paint! So a small group of us from different backgrounds all gathered at my place on Sunday afternoons this past winter to paint in watercolour.

Here you'll meet Helen Moore, Raymond Memiumskum and Melissa Dempsey as we learned about the characteristics of certain colours, tried new brushstrokes and waded through techniques to achieve some exciting results. Our fuel was the will to improve our techniques, and plenty of cups of laughter and tea!

Our results are included in this small sampling. Every Sunday session resulted in a new watercolour for each of us. Bravo, my watercolour friends. I wish you much success in your creative endeavours!
