Capturing the Beauty of Colour, Light and Shadow

Art Log

(posted on 21 Jan 2023)

It's been a while since you heard from me but I assure you that I've been painting.

I've long wanted to paint clouds with success, capturing their billowing formations, the dispersal of streams of vapour and the gradation of blues in the sky. Until I shifted to oil paint, my works couldn't have come close to reality. For many years, though all seasons I'd sit outside and look at the skies, on my back deck in Vancouver overlooking Burrard Inlet I'd watch clouds forming and separating leaving long trails of mist in the sky. Like everyone in childhood I'd stretch out in the grass and observe clouds and proclaim that one looked like a cow or a sailing ship. Now that I've moved again, the skies and the sunsets are the hands-down entertainment winners.

Here's one for you that I hope you like, oil on canvas, 16" high by 20" wide.  If you have any questions please hit 'Contact'.  I would love to hear your reactions.
