'September on the Cheakamus'

Finally had a chance for a quick visit up
to Whistler last week to see my oldest son.
Fortunately the weather was nice on the
way up so we stopped for lunch and a paint
out. The Cheakamus River is a beautiful piece
of water as it tumbles down from the high country.
This spot was easily accessible for us and I
took quite a few reference photo's as well for
some future large canvases.

'Rising Wind'

This piece was worked up from a plein air piece I did
last year. The morning started out flat calm and sunny
and after painting for about 20 minutes I decided I
really needed some sun screen on, however not long
after that it was, hurry and get it done before
we got wet and blown away.

As always I invite your thoughts & comments!

'Westerlies at Sunset'

This painting is an expansion of a piece I painted a
month ago. The larger format gave me a sense of
freedom with my brush and so I went with it.
The 'westerlies' referred to here is that wind that happens
commonly in our area from afternoon to evening when the
heat in the interior of the province rises and creates a
sort of vacuum drawing in the air from the coast,
usually in westerly winds.
Oil on canvas 30 x 40.
Your thoughts and comments are always valued.
I would like to draw your attention to an artist
that I recently added to my artist link list.
A painter and writer from Ontario and master
of painting en plein air...

'Changing Weather'

As I mentioned in my last post my second recent
evening excursion was made just as a weather front
was arriving in our area and the drama of colour and
atmospheric interest was quite fantastic. However
I had to move along with my painting, even so it
was almost dark by the time I was back at the vehicle.
Oil on wood panel 6 x 8.
Thoughts & comments always welcomed.
I have included some photo's below showing some
of the action that evening.

'Late Summer-Highrock'

Oh yes the the time is late and seems to quicken with
the passing days. At times the melancholies are hard
to shake with summers passing. I went painting on two
evenings recently and was rewarded with wonderful
painting opportunities on both excursions.
A weather front was approaching and change was in the
air, it arrived last night and summer almost seems
like a distant memory already!
Oil on wood panel 9 x 12.
Your thoughts & comments are always appreciated!

'Shoreline Willow'

A fairly complex subject for a small plein air piece.
But as usual I tend to try and get it all in there.
The shallow rocky shoreline, dappled with pure light,
varying shades of shadow and reflected sky colour.
Move back from your monitor it'll make better sense.
Oil on wood panel 6 x 8.
Comments always encouraged & appreciated!
