SOME LINGERING MEMORIES OF TEXADA ISLAND, BC

NEW WORKS FROM THE STUDIO OF ART BY WENDY
WHO'S THERE - 4.5 x 6.5 - $130 unframed

“WHO’S THERE?”  is another drawing that reminds me not all our days were sunny on our holidays.  Not to take it in a bad way, sometimes it is nice to just curl up read a book, drink hot chocolate and draw.  When you are camping there is no housework calling nor computer work, it really is quite relaxing.  I thoroughly enjoyed working on this picture and I loved “her look”.  
TIDLE POOL - 4.5 X 6.5 - $130 unframed
When the sun was out I was back at it, I settled into another spot along the beach and painted “TIDLE POOL” in my more conventional way.  Don’t get me wrong I do love this picture and I really like what I accomplished in the sky and the shoreline but I had the urge to do something different.  That night I put colour on my paper – Burnt Sienna and Ultramarine and just pushed it around.  The next day I went back to the same area and drew my picture.  Then came hours of work: lifting, looking, dabbing and using a bit of white charcoal to finish it up.  A really challenging picture and one I was ready to give up on so many times but then a new idea would spring to mine and I was back at it.  Certainly a lot of fun!

EVENING WATERS - 4.5 x 6.5 - $130 unframed
Caught up on things and ready to start new projects , have a great day and good luck on your summer projects.
As always all works are available in matted prints for as low as $7.00.

Thank you Joan and welcome to my blog. It is always nice to see new faces. I enjoyed your work as well.

Thanks Gillian, I must admitt my work is very precise and detailed and it is nice to 'let loose' sometimes. I do enjoy the blend of realistic with impressionistic colour.
