The images shared in Franklin Carmichael: An Artist's Process provide an intimate look at the Group of Seven artist's approach to painting landscape. There is resonance in Franklin Carmichael's practice of painting outdoors, en plein air, on site with a sparkling view of La Cloche mountains or Lake Superior or a northern town like Cobalt before him.
These art works reveal much about the materials he used, his palette of colours, how he prepared a panel or painting surface, his preliminary sketch, his form of composition, and his process of painting in oils or in watercolour.
