The west coast




Two quick sketches done on location at the rugged beaches of the west coast of Vancouver island, near Tofino. Here I found very inspiring views. Endless beaches, which at low tide turn into smooth reflective surfaces. Wind-swept trees. Picturesque coves, Multitude of islands and rocks of all sizes sprinkled close to the shore. Every few steps you make, reveal a new scene.

Blue and yellow

Irises and muscari, watercolor 30 x 22 cm
No, no spring flowers here yet, still dealing with nearly winter weather. So, painting from last spring's garden photos is a good way to deal with the discontent.
I am proud of combining these two flowers in my garden, both blooming at the same time and going so well together.
