Finlayson Arm from St.Stephens

"Finlayson Arm from St.Stephens"

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.

Havenwood from Pendray House

When I got this home today I saw that it was lacking in lights so I went ahead and added some. Now the painting has more impact for me. There were some 25 of us painting en plein air today, a nice turn-out but oh the was so strong that Jude's metal easel blew over and one of its legs broke! For the two-hour session I had to keep my canvas down with my left hand. Still, the weather cannot spoil the utter joy of painting outside.
