This painting is a study and was was inspired by our family’s trip to Banff National Park this summer.
My son, a professional photographer, walked to the edge of a dock to set up a shot, and I snapped a photo to capture the moment.
I was in awe of the colors in Canada. The deep blue greens of the cedars and hemlocks, the deep greys of the glaciers, and the turquoise lakes were breathtaking.
In this painting, I intentionally kept the mountains, clouds, and lake varying shades of grey, and placed the brightest colors on the blue sky and my son & the dock in the foreground.
This is day 3 of 30 Paintings in 30 Days, and I’m focusing on a sky theme. This day was cloudy and grey, with a peek of blue at the sky corners.
