Capturing the Spirit


Here’s a link to artists “capturing the spirit” at Vancouver Island Musicfest last summer. It’s an exciting challenge to paint outdoors, since conditions are in constant flux; not like controlled studio conditions where the tendency is to paint slower and to be less spontaneous. I took a few reference photos for later, but was able to paint most of this impression of the main music stage, on location. What great fun!

  2. Ha…I looked so hard that day, that the next morning my eyes were almost closed shut from puffiness…I guess from all the particles in the air. Thanks for your comment Jen!
