Bee Series – 3 & 4

Here are two more little bee paintings. These are going pretty quick – if you don’t count two failed attempts before these. Always more to learn.

For sale here.

Happy Bees

A long time ago I bought a bunch of 4″ x 4″ canvases, but I can’t remember why. They have been sitting here for years. I decided that I wanted to paint some bees and these little canvases are perfect. I plan to use them all, so more bees to come!

For sale here.

Sparrows and Blossoms

Sparrows and Blossoms 20″ x 16″

Working on something bigger this time. With the larger size, there’s much more background space to consider. I tried to make it interesting, but not too busy, so that the focus stays on the birds. 

Boy in the Meadow

Boy in the Meadow 8″ x 8″

The boy in this meadow is my son. This is how the meadow looks in the spring with lupines and buttercups blooming. It’s full of birds, insects and frogs, which makes it one of his favourite places.

I had some trouble with this painting. It is an overcast day and the lighting is very flat. I am used to adding dimension with highlights and shadows, but in this picture they are very subtle. I’m not sure I succeeded with this painting – something to keep working on I guess.

Yellow Hills

Yellow Hills 18″ x 24″

I was in Alberta this summer and had some time to appreciate the landscape. From the top of the one of the gentle rolling hills, you can see forever – so different from the view here in Vancouver. In the background you can see the Rochfort Bridge Trestle, one of the longest wooden train trestles in North America.
