Vancouver Island

This is one of many landscapes I’ve been doing over the past few months. This is on the very west coast of Vancouver Island not far from Tofino. This is a large drawing and in it’s first stage at present, just Indian ink on paper. From here it can either get better or worse. If it gets worse I generally just rip it up. Over faffing can foul it up, and I am prone to over faffing, both in life and in what might be laughingly called art.

We visited this area some years ago now but the memory of this area stays with me. My cousin and I reducing each other to tears of laughter when reminiscing about our various family tales.

Whilst on this beach a sea eagle swooped down and grabbed a fish from the sea, I kid you not. Oh for those wide open spaces at the moment.
