Perfect weather brought out at least twenty plein air artists at Metchosin on Vancouver Island this morning.
I chose this tangerine-painted barn with the gravel workings on the hillside. To see my impasto please click on the image to get a close-up view, then hit your BACK button to return here and perhaps you might leave me a COMMENT (see the heading immediately below this text and click on COMMENTS).
My approach is a bit like Harley Brown. A quick oil sketch, painted in situ in about an hour. This monument, situated at Cattle Point in Oak Bay in Victoria BC, is dedicated to the memory of Oak Bay citizens who gave their lives during WW2 - 1939 to 1945. Lovingly surrounded by red tulips, yellow daffodils and purple camas, the monument nestles in a quiet bend in the road, facing the sea. Nearby, a tall Canadian flag was chattering in the wind this morning, saying more than my words can say.
