The 1875 McClure House Painting Sketch Project – Part 2

Sorry for the rough quality of the video, but ran out of memory on my SDRC card.

Artist Chris Erskine continues with his painting sketch of the 1875 McClure House located west of Toronto. Mr. McClure was a stage coach-hotel business person. The location is half-way between Hamilton and Toronto. People would travel by stage coach from the 1830s to the turn of the 1880s. This is the fourth visit to this location.

Canvas Mural – Part 2

This is a first attempt at creating a canvas mural that can be used in film and event productions.  The canvas is untreated cotton and is left over material from other projects.  Based on the results of this project, I will plan something more complex for a future work.

The canvas mural is just one of several ongoing projects that is occurring this summer.

Thanks for your interest and support.

Juilan Schnabel

HBO had this series on young artists being given the opportunity to learn from leading figures.  This episode is about Julian Schnabel tutoring 18-year-old students about how he approaches art and how they might deal with their development as artists.

At the moment, I am re-discovering Julian Schnabel.  I found this nice profile video on his daughter, Lola Schnabel.

Hamilton Artist update 29 – 1875 McClure House

On the Road and painting McClure House located half-way between Hamilton and Toronto.  The owner of this estate had a very rewarding stagecoach-hotel operation throughout the 19th century.  People travelling between Hamilton and Toronto would stop at a location near to his estate for a overnight stay at his hotel.
