Landscape 2 - "Foggy from Cattle Point" MD Sansom

The painting shown here is quite small. Oil on board, sited at Cattle point looking landward on a very foggy morning. Quite a touch of mystery, leaving the viewer much to imagine.

September Sky Esquimalt Lagoon

'Some cloud chasing with this piece, 
on a beautiful early September morning.
The resting Gulls in the foreground 
seemed little concerned with my folly...'

Yew Tree farm - watercolour and pencil 8x10

This Blog is mostly about plein air works - indeed this is one that I painted in England a few months ago. Yew Tree Farm - our hostess told us that Prince Charles stays here occasionally. She didn't divulge any more snippets about that. Privacy and privilege of course. I wonder if Coll and I got the same room though?

Three yachts at Oak Bay Marina

This is one of my favourite MD Sansom plein air pieces - simple yet full of impact and a nice style to boot.
