Missed the fall, but not the falls – Chute Croches, Mont Tremblant Park

October 11, 2011

The fall colors seem to have come and gone whilst I was chained to my computer drawing various things I can’t show you. We made a last ditch attempt to get out to see Mont Tremblant before leaves were gone entirely. Was a lot more green and gold than I remember it. Shouldn’t there be some maples in here if it’s Canada? In any case – was good to get out – and challenge myself with some moving water. I have to say – damn hard to paint waterfalls. Moving water is going on the list to try again. Oh, and before someone asks – yes, Diablo Falls is 10 minutes away, and is much more exciting! Has a better name too. I can’t figure out what ‘Croches’ means. And google is not much help. “Did you mean…”

So yes, the painting I did at Diablo kind of melted in the spray up there. Didn’t turn out well at all :) So it shall never be seen in the light of day! Hahaha! (like I said, I need a round two with this moving water stuff).

    Well, this one is great! The fall colors seem good in some places and past in others – it was very brown everywhere when we drove through Vermont a week ago. A “crochet” is a hook, and I think here “croches” means bent or crooked or hooked.

    I can almost hear the rushing water. It looks as if you work on smooth paper, which added greatly to the freshness…
