Sunny days in Montreal and Light

Lately I've been outside painting watercolours, so it was a pleasant change to get back to the oils in the studio.  The light is so beautiful on these long summer days and it seems that the studio absorbs every ray which then play around my canvas waiting to be caught and eternalized with paint!  I find the best way to capture light is with a spatula.  There never seem to be enough once I start painting.  I have to make sure that I clean them between each stroke of colour so that it retains its brilliance! Yesterday I worked more on the painting of M.  It really resonates. Some paintings take a few months or even years to finish, just like some projects!
