En attendant sur le quai, Philippe Bédard, February 2004. Acrylic on canvas, 35,5 x 28 cm, 14 x 11 po. © Philippe Bédard.

A man reads a red book standing on the platform of a train station. Only the side where he waits is illuminated by this cloudy night.

My first attempt at acrylic… Even if, in the end, I find this canvas quite successful (for a first!), it was rather difficult to do because I was used to working with oil for several years. Unlike oil which takes days to dry (and even weeks if applied thickly!), acrylic dries in less than ten or fifteen minutes. This peculiarity that I now find very practical has still almost made a mess for the sky and the ground!
