Peggy's Cove

Boats at Peggy's Cove (22 x 30 cm) (n/a)

Fog at Peggy's Cove (30 x 22 cm)
Peggy's cove is a picturesque small fishing village on the Atlantic shore of Nova Scotia. Its colorful wooden houses are spread on the rocks around the small inlet (cove). The entrance to the cove is marked by a lighthouse.
We visited this place more that ten years ago, on a cold rainy day, hence the foggy conditions in these views. These are just fragments from larger views, that do not show the actual village. Maybe in the future I will feel confident enough to paint more of it.

Very beautiful and peaceful paintings, I like both! The sky and the reflections in the water are very good!

Thank you, Jane and Judy! It is a beautiful place, still preserving the charm of an old fishing village.
The fog helped me to simplify the scenes to some extent, but there is still much to be desired :)
