Summer Clouds-Plumper Bay

This is another in the series of paintings I've been doing
of the upper end of Esquimalt Harbour.
It is quite a beautiful place even though development has
taken place here for more than
a hundred years. I could see the clouds building
from my studio window so off I went, and I
wasn't disappointed, they were spectacular.
Oil on canvas 8 x 10.

plus the cost of shipping.

I really like how you captured the rolling clouds, I can almost feel the cool breeze!

I agree the clouds are wonderful!

The sky is singing--wonderous well!
I so admire your rendering of the forest. The way you build it, simply, with gesture, yet formidable, is remarkable. We don't really have many trees, by comparison, in the desert. So, painting trees with branches or leaves would be so challenging. However, you make it look easy.

Wow, thanks for your generous critique! One day I would truly love to spend some painting time in desert country...course there would have to be clouds! =;-))
