Painting in a Kayak

Morning on Manitou  6x8 Oil on Board


 


I've been fortunate to be able to get out onto the water in my kayak and paint what I'm seeing of late. I have a small 6x8 pochade box that I take along because of its portability and size; not much room in the cockpit of my skin boat.  I'm loving it and look forward to doing more.

Afternoon Shadows

Afternoon Shadows Oil 20 x 20 in.
Its been awhile since I last posted, no real good excuse. The shadows are getting longer, a sure sign that the days are getting longer and spring is approaching. I encounter this scene regularly on my walks in the countryside around my home and was quite taken with what I saw here the other day and was inspired to paint it. Hope you enjoy it!

Otter Lake

Otter Lake, Mb.  Oil on Canvas 30 x 30 in
An Oil painting of a place dear to my heart.  I have driven past this location for as long as I can remember since I was a child and I have also trekked here at different times of the year.  It is precambrian shield country between The Pas and Flin Flon Mb.  Lots of cool lakes with rock outcroppings in the most unlikely places, a real gem.

Late Afternoon Light

Late Afternoon Light Oil on Board 12 x 12 in.
Here's an en plein air piece from about a month ago when the weather was unseasonably warm. There is a small pond that I call Wellington Pond that is a favourite spot of mine to hang out at, lots of interesting things going on there if one spends the time to look and listen.
