Cascade 5" x 5" acrylic $245
I just returned from a trip to Vancouver Island, BC and while there was able to do some "plein air" painting (painting on site). This type of painting offers a challenge because the light and weather influences the landscape with constant change. Painting quickly is key! This painting was done in an anchorage known to locals as Cascade which offered us a break from the open water swells and wind waves. The area is part of a group of islands located in the mouth of the Queen Charlotte Strait outside of Port Hardy. We saw eagles, otters, deer, whales and dolphins here. If you are interested in watching wildlife or fishing for halibut and salmon in a spectacular setting you can visit http://www.silverfoxmarinecharters.com/ for more information.
