Travel as inspiration

I love travel. This way I see new -to-me ideas and inspirations for my painting. My last travel experience was India. I participated in an artist in residence experience in the Himalayas. It was beautiful there and also very different from my own experience with mountains. My artistic goal was to compare the Canadian Rockies to the Himalayas. I am still digesting all my information but it was definitely worth it.  While I was there, I worked in watercolour (because it is easy to travel with) but once I was home, I really focused on skies.  I saw these glorious mountains but it is the skies that impressed me the most, it seems.

If you want to see my India photos, you can go to Youtube.  Check out my channel.  Just search Doris Charest….and Tada! There I am. -Beautiful evening mixed media on paper $ IMG_9634
