Today I went on a field trip with my son's class to Witty's Lagoon near Victoria, BC. It is so beautiful there and the mountains looked so close. I think I took 200 reference photos while I was there. It was a perfect day with the sun shining brightly.
This painting is created from two reference photos. One was of the boy with the skim board and the other photo was of the mountains. I am happy with the results.
