I am part of the “Plein air ensemble”, a group of about 30 artists largely from the Ottawa-Gatineau region. The group will be painting in early April 2009 for 5-6 days at the Centre Touristique de la Petite Rouge, about 30 km north of Montebello, Quebec. The Rivière Rouge, Petite Rouge, la Petite Nation and la Lièvre are among the picturesque rivers in the area which flow south into the Ottawa River. In April we will be able to enjoy painting rapids, waterfalls, woodlands, swamps as well as villages and rural landscapes. It is very fulfilling to capture this wonderful area on canvas.
The pictures below are from our trip in April 2007.
