"Madrona Farm"
The Madrona Farm outside Victoria BC

We had no idea that such an attractive rural spot was so close to our city of Victoria. The way that the fields are draped over the low hill is just wonderful for a painter. About twenty of us had a go at it and we all did well. I strove for a simple composition and left out peripherals such as the odd tractor and hedge!
Chek-TV was there too today and some of our lovelies will be on the box tonight, I'm sure.

"The Beach at Mount Douglas"

Sun, glorious sun!
About eighteen artists chose Mt.Doug Park for this week's paint-in. I used my 9 x 16-inch canvas board to get this panoramic effect, quite a challenge to get the scene down within two hours, so I made it sketchy with large loose brushwork.
