Nova Scotia South Shore

Nova Scotia South Shore
16" x 16" - acrylic on canvas - $150
Trees, water, shoreline are the quintessential Canadian landscape elements that continue to inspire painters, myself included. This work is based on a detail from a photo I took last summer while driving along the South Shore of Nova Scotia. I was in the province visiting good friends and family and enjoying the sights of Canada's Ocean Playground. It's always a challenge to work from a photo reference as they never provide as much clear detail as you can see when in front of the scene. But that also allows for a level of freedom to create, and I guess that's what I like.
