Day 18: Steep Island

"Steep Island" - 6x8 - Oil on Canvas
"Isla Steep" - 10x15 - Oleo sobre Lienzo

So I was going to paint something different today but I'll save that for a studio day. Today in the end I decided to paint what was right outside our room here in  Quadra Island. I painted for about an hour and a couple of seals were splashing right there for the whole time. Went for a drive, visited Cape Mudge Lighthouse (one of the last manned light houses in Western Canada) and Rebecca Spit which is a GORGEOUS area. We went on a wildlife tour and saw about 20 to 30 orcas and about 200 dolphins swimming in a channel, lots of them coming right up to the zodiak,  swimming,  jumping and splashing alongside us. I can never get tired of enjoying the scenery around us here!

Setting up - Armando todo


Hoy iba a pintar algo diferente pero decidí guardar esa idea para un día de taller y pinté lo que tengo afuera de nuestra habitación acá en la Isla Quadra. Pinté durante una hora mas o menos y un par de focas estaban saltando todo el tiempo. Fuimos a dar una vuelta en el auto, visitamos el faro en Cape Mudge, (Uno de los últimos faros que no es automatizado, es así como se dice??) y Rebecca Spit que es una zona HERMOSISIMA. Fuimos en un tour en el que vimos 20 o 30 orcas y alrededor de 200 delfines que nadaban, saltaban y salpicaban al lado nuestro. No me puedo cansar nunca de disfrutar la naturaleza que nos rodea acá!
