Hidden View - 16x20", acrlyic on canvas ...
Here is the finished painting that I was working on as a demo for the Moss Street Paint-In. I started on a black canvas and then painted in the sky, mountains and water, and finally the green of the tree boughs and the foreground salal. All of the black left showing is the original starting base colour.
This view is from Tofino, with Cox Bay in the background. There is a rocky point of land on the north end of the beach, with a boardwalk running through the forested bit - this is the "hidden view" of the water from here. I am fascinated by the shapes of the trees and the little snippets of view you get between them.
