Alex Colville AGO

I went to the Art Gallery of Ontario in Toronto this past weekend to see an exhibit on Alex Colville. I enjoyed his unique style of painting. I was surprised how elaborated his sketches were. His subjects sometimes look like they "float" in the painting because he did not paint any shadows. I liked this effect, a bit magical.
