NEW WORKS FROM THE STUDIO OF ART BY WENDY
First Picture from our Trip to Texada Island
Sunshine on Dick Island, Texada Island, BC - 4.5 x 6.5 - $130
Do you find it rejuvenating to look at the water? I love to sit and look out at the ocean. It is always changing and certainly not always blue!! You will notice that I was experimenting with different blues. I do love Ultra Marine with a little Burnt Sienna to give that feeling of distant mountains but this time I tried Phalo Blue. It gave a lovely glow to everything and also an old English country feel. It must have been one of their standby colours in the old days.
This is one of my favourite views from Shelter Point, Dick Island to the left and the Coastal Mountains on Vancouver Island in the distant. Notice the Forbidden Plateau Glacier is in this area of the mountain range as we are almost directly east of it. The Glacier looks down on the Comox Valley where both Steve and I grow up. Yes, the water was that calm. We had many days when the wind was silent and the water was just like glass.
As always cards and prints are available for all my pictures starting at $3.25 for a card.
Have a good day and more of my holiday pictures on my next post.
