A wonderfully sunny day on Vancouver Island - Mount Douglas beach. A chilly wind kept me company while I painted this first scene today - 11" x 14" oils.
I find myself coming back to this spot time and time again. Yes, I did have time for a second one:
"Seagull Rock" (Mt.Doug beach) which I painted on the shallows as the tide ran out. Nelson the seagull obliged by posing impassively on the rock and I had fun searching out the blues, pinks and greens that I saw in the water. This is a rapid oil sketch 8" x 6" which is on show at the Small Paintings exhibition currently on at the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria.
