April Point Resort
Quadra Island, BC
This is another painting that I did with my class on watercolor washes. The sky is a wet in wet gradated wash.
The distant island as well as the posts were done as a flat beaded wash. The closer islands and the foreground foliage was a wet in wet wash.
The image is taken from a photo of Discovery Passage. April Point Resort and Spa on Quadra Island (which is off the coast of Vancouver Island, BC) is a place that I often teach workshops. It is a beautiful location with lots of wildlife. The orca (or killer) whales are often seen passing through here. There are many fabulous whale watching tours and fishing trips to be taken.
I will be returning to April Point on May 30-June 1 to teach a course called Fun with Watercolours. We will be painting a heron and pouring a beautiful background to go along with it.
I will also be teaching a course called Fun and Free Watercolours just the 2 days before that (May 28-May30) at Painter's Lodge in Campbell River, BC on Vancouver Island. Painter's Lodge is seen directly across the passage from April Point Resort. This course is a fun approach to landscapes.
The price for each course plus a 2 night stay is only $199/person.
