On the canal - made for a contest
One of the magazines I have subscribed to, "Plaisirs de Peindre" is celebrating its 20th birthday with a contest for all subscribers. At the cost of a small fee we can download twenty sketches that were published before in the magazine. One of those sketches has to be the inspiration for a work of art. Each sketch already has an example of a painting that has been made and published in the magazine.
Amongst a lot of still life and flowery sketches this little landscape attracted my attention.
Being free to 'translate' the initial sketch to an artwork of my own I decided on a winter scene using only three colours.
The final date for submission is past, so now I am publishing my work. (Of course I did submit in time!)
The contest goes on, the next issue will hold the same call for entries, only there will be different sketches available to paint or draw our works of art. I am really looking forward to that!
