Since Blogger updated I can't figure out why feed burner is not sending out my blog posts to my subscribers. Is anyone else having this problem? Do you know how to fix it?
Green Point Rapids B.C., 6" x 6" Oil on RayMar panel, © 2012, Nancy Van Blaricom
One of my all time favorite places to be is British Columbia.
I love the water, the boats, the wild life, the people ... the great places to explore on and near the water, its all yummy to me. With their renowned and spectacular scenery this scene is typical of what we often see when we are boating in B.C. Yes, you are right, I could easily be on British Colombia's Tourist Board.
The photo reference for this painting was taken a few years ago on the inside passaage of Vancouver Island at Green Point Rapids.
I thoroughly enjoyed painting this one. At first I wasn't sure how I was going paint the steep mountain in the background and then it became obvious, it was mostly smokey blues and grays because of the distance and the steepness. The water that day was pretty calm with the sun sparkling on the water. But, my main focus was the boat with its poles down to help keep it from rolling side to side too much.
Yes, I really loved painting this one.
