Hi from beautiful Ucluelet and Tofino. One of the great sites on the west coast. Been here with our RV at least once yearly for the twelve years we have spent on Vancouver Island. Wonderful dramatic skies and shorelines.
Taken from the beach in front of our RV.
But the reason for the post is to answer a question I got from a number of followers. Its about the clamp I use to hold my sketch pad for plein air and my photos when studio paintings. There are a number of double ended clamps available but this is the one I like best. They can be purchased from photo stores that handle Manfrotto products but I get mine from Judson Plein air. Not cheap but very handy and sturdy.
Thanks for the clamp info Brian. While you're in Ucluelet, if you haven't already, check out the Wild Pacific Trail; there's some very easy access to rugged ocean vistas from the Lighthouse parking area. I'll add a link with short video, showing trail surface and views. If I remember correctly, the trail is paved for the short access to first ocean and lighthouse view from that spot, so surface would work well for bringing along your painting equipment: http://www.longbeachmaps.com/wildtrail.htmlReplyDelete
Hi. Cathy and I are big fans of what they are doing in UCluelet. Got on to a stretch of the trail near Black Rock Inn that leads out to a point for the first time. Great spot. Love Ucluelet. Have painted from it a few times. Heavy rain and wind most of this weekend so just photos.Delete
Thank you so much for answering the clamp question. I've been looking everywhere for it and could find neither hide nor hair. I especially love the treatment of the sky in this piece...truly inspiring!ReplyDelete
You are very much a colourist! Fabulous painting and a great sense of west coast majesty. Hope the eye is improving.ReplyDelete
Thanks Jennie. And I am adapting to the changes in the eye. All the best.Delete
