This blog post shares one of my Roe Islet arbutus paintings that was completed recently.
Recently I have been working on a series of paintings based on Roe Islet, a protected Parks Canada site on Pender Island (British Columbia, Canada). I am really enjoying focusing on creating art based on the such an interesting area of Canadian landscape.
This painting was done quickly one evening, I wanted to paint a simplified feel of the tree without getting too hung up on details. It is a small 8×10 painting, acrylic on canvas, that focuses on the twists of the tree and the colors of night.
If you have the opportunity to ever stroll to the very end of Roe Islet, you will surely recognize the tree, just past the white bench and to the left. You can’t miss it.
