Lost in Thought
A watercolour painting by Maurice Dionne that can be viewed and purchased at UGallery.
A lone figure sits in the sun on a late fall day. Bare branches arch overhead, like the stone tracery of a gothic cathedral window. Light glows through the misty autumn air. What is the story? When I saw this person, suffused in light, sitting near the grand Chateau Laurier in Ottawa, I was immediately touched. I just had to capture it. To enhance the dreamy atmosphere, I used a soft and loose technique for the gothic facade of the Chateau. I wanted my painting to express a mood, a figure in contemplation bathed in light, but I want the viewer to complete the story.
