Blog entry 2 today

Here is an image I did at Royal Roads here in Victoria.  I was attracted by the little Japanese bridge and the reflections in the pond below it.

Coming Soon! - Exciting new website

You’ve probably noticed that my website is still under construction. New life in British Columbia means new work and a fresh start. You’ve also probably guessed that my forte is art, not the technical end of website development, but I’m getting there. Please keep checking back regularly as I slowly build up my painting galleries. I’m looking forward to presenting you with the exciting new paintings I’ve been working on. In the meantime, here’s a small taste of what I've been doing - John

Winter Plein Air Painting

Painting outside in the winter months. A question of comfort makes the process of painting easier. Equipment kept to a minimum as well as working in smaller sizes. A good pair of warm winter boots and insulated clothing, as well as good gloves, or hand-warmers. Oil paints are not affected like acrylics in low temperatures, although in really cold temperatures oils will stiffen, a little painting medium helps the flow.
