I’m back from a wonderful weekend with my husband and our friends Christina and Mike in Niagara Falls. We celebrated with some champagne which inspired my drawing on Day 14. I wanted to depict the bottle in as few brush strokes as possible and so I used Art Rage on my iPad to do this painting.
I did the painting on Saturday morning before we went out for a day of touring. We went to a number of wineries – Peller Estates, Hillebrand, Konzelmann, Stonechurch and Cattail Creek. We enjoyed the samples and brought our favourites home to enjoy. It was the first weekend of the Niagara Ice Wine Festival so there were a lot of people out and about even though it was a really cold day.
Christina and Mike have commissioned me to do the painting of a boat tied to a dock (one of the two I mentioned last week). When I got home today I pulled out a canvas and started sketching it out. The painting will be 16″ x 20″. Here’s the photo I’m working from.
