whistler in canada
i'm a big fan of james abbott mcneill whistler's work. you all know the painting of this mother, i'm sure. well i like his other stuff, his work with light, in the same vein as turner. years ago, when i was a student in boston, i saw his Harmony in blue and silver. Trouville. i thought it was pretty modern for 1865. pale bleu and yellow, a guy standing there in a long coat and a boat in the distance. lonely, empty, peaceful. (you can see it here)
not too long, i came across it again online and i thought 'wow, i've got the perfect picture for this.' i had this beach shot which i took in canada a few years back. i think it was wasaga beach but i'm not 100% sure 'see below). again, i just created a couple textures for it and voilà.... whistler in canada!
