On Friday morning July 25, 2008 our Plein Air Group visited St.Stephens just outside Victoria on Vancouver Island BC. We had a great time, everyone turned in some excellent work, I was delighted to see the quality of the other artists' work Yippeee...
For my part, I was drawn by the zig-zag of the field and the water, a wonderful device to show aerial perspective.
As usual the image is clickable - also click COMMENTS to send me a critique!
I really like the soft nature of this painting,the colors give it a modern fresh look, the mood is inviting and the zig zag brings it alive. I know this area a little, can you tell me where exactly St. Stephens is and what direction this painting is facing.
Delia Sansom provides the reply: "St Stephen's Church is located at the western end of Mount Newton Cross Road. From the churchyard, facing south and west, the view takes in Woodwyn Farm and Finlayson Arm." Thanks Delia.
Soft and subtle. Beautiful colors. Very sweet! Suzy
