Misty Sundown

This is another in a series of paintings I am doing
of a small park that is quite close to my studio.
I mentioned to an artist friend of mine, KEN FAULKS
when we were plein air painting there a couple of days
ago, that I thought there where at least a hundred
paintings in this little park just waiting to be painted.
He is an exceptionally accomplished plein air painter.

Oil on board 6 x 6.

November Marsh

It was quite cool for plein air painting this morning
but I'm glad I made it out. The Panama Flats is
a wetland on the outskirts of Victoria. It is a lovely
birding area, that right now is full of waterfowl.
A small flock of swans landed while I was there
painting. I was also fortunate to spot an
Eurasian Wigeon in amongst the many other dabblers.
Oil on board 6 x 6.

Golden Fields

Tried to capture that brief moment of chroma spectacular
near the finale of one of those fall sunsets.
It is incredible to experience that
amazing colour saturation.

Storm Over the Malahat

We have moved into our more normal weather
patterns for this time of year. This plein air piece,
done today, reflects that. All day long the gale warnings
were up and the skies where very threatening...like
weather every where, we are still awaiting the
winds and rain forecasted.
Oil on board 6 x 8.

Sunset Fields

Natures infinite variety of colour and light has always
intrigued me. The way they play on the landscape
is what drives me to paint.

Autumn Light


I painted this from a photograph I took while out painting
a couple of weeks ago. Another of the remnant pockets
of Garry Oak meadow here on the South Island. This one is
a wonderful little park in Esquimalt. I plan to do many
more paintings in this amazing little spot.
Oil on board 6 x 8.

November Morning

I always find low light levels, cool and damp conditions
very challenging when painting outdoors. It is
something that I want to improve on and become more
confident in. Living on the west coast certainly
affords ample opportunities for practice!
Oil on board 8 x 10.

Saltspring Fields *SOLD*

I painted this piece using a plein air painting
that I did this spring as a reference. It was a surprise
how, while painting this piece, I was taken right back
to that lovely day in late May of this year. The sky
seemed full of swallows darting after flying insects,
dozens of Turkey vultures swooping low over the hay fields
and landing as they hunted for newly exposed food.
The sweet smell of fresh cut hay.
Oil on canvas 6 x 8.

Ski Country Sunset

This one was painted from a photo taken in the Whistler
area. My oldest son lives there and snowboards
every minute he can. He will be watching the
snowline very closely right now!
Wishing all you boarders some snow clouds.

Autumn Sky *SOLD*

My fascination with clouds continues with this
evening scene in early fall. These hay fields
provide me with endless inspiration.
I hope they will always be like this.
