Charlevoix, Quebec – Days Four and Five

Day Four took us to St. Irenee, another seaside town with beautiful houses and barns and outbuildings with lots of character. The town rises up dramatically from the beach and offered the group some interesting, and challenging, perspectives.

We roamed the countryside on our final day. The scenic farms make very satisfying subjects. Some of the group found a wonderful jumble of barns to paint.

Liz didn’t mean to be anti-social; she just preferred the view from the other side of the road.

The traditional architecture is a pleasure to draw and paint. Susan and Phil came across this beauty.

Even the locals can’t resist the views that must be so familiar to them. This groundhog managed to climb a five foot fencepost for a bask in the sunshine.

Another week of sketching and painting in Charlevoix, Quebec has come to an end. All of the participants deserve thanks for helping making it a memorable experience.

The life of the itinerant art instructor continues. I’m posting this from Grand Manan Island, New Brunswick. Tonight, my new group is gathering at the Marathon Inn for the Welcome Dinner for this week’s seaside painting holiday. Halibut or Lamb?

    More pictures, Barry!!! More demos!!! Will you post the final critique paintings from the group?? Seems as though you still found many unique spots for painting. It’s with great regret I wasn’t on this trip with you. … Looking forward to the Grand Manan sites!
