Compliments to the Grand Trunk Trail
Today's painting depicts the Grand Trunk Trail in early morning. This section of trail spans the Sarnia Bridge, a historic bridge dating back to 1858. Originally the bridge was part of a train line headed west towards Sarnia, Ontario. While no longer an active railway - the bridge was part of a revitalization to create St. Mary's beautiful Grand Trunk Trail.
I approached this painting with the goal of simplicity. Starting with a black gessoed canvas, I only used 3 pigments for this painting... cadmium orange, ultramarine blue, and titanium white. Hope you like it.
