Great lighting and atmosphere! Is the sky a photograph?
I’m a beginner and find rails evasive…

Lovely image. I looked at your piece particularly as I lived there in my youth a number of decades ago.

Ty mate. Québec is so nice that I sometimes feel like it’s the most beautiful city in North America.

Quebec is my favorite city. Great to see this image of our early history. We’ll done. It really invokes what it must have been like back then.

It pulls the viewer in, and intrigues. A nice contrast of cool tones against the warmth of the camp’s fire. And of the raw, unforgiving nature with people’s divine aspirations. Beautiful.

TY guys for all the good words!

Thanks for that. Food for thought. Rails should say clouds. How did I end up writing that?

Merci ! Thank you bartv !

nice scene for Quebec in 1600 with Champlain

i wish we knew where Champlain was buried !

Champlain was all over The East coast or North America

but he started i guess with Quebec to have a central Base
in case of Attack from the English which did happen many years after 1609

you could make another scene with some boat in winter
and show the Big Momorency fall

happy cl

Interesting idea. Before going to make another historical scene I have to see how many prints I could sell from this one.

This is next level, the colors are so beautiful, the composition is on point! Thanks for sharing your artwork! Such an inspiration
