MONTREAL BY NIGHT 24×30 Acrylic on canvas 2010
Commissioned by clients in Montreal. I looked at images of Montreal at night from the 1970s. There were two colours that stuck out. One was a ocher and the other was a teal blue/pale green colour. The other two dominant colours are red and blue from the Montreal Canadians hockey team. Here are three colour palettes I started with to make the painting.
I think I’ll revisit painting Montreal again. It is one of my favourite cities in Canada.
