In May, we flew to Seattle to visit family
and retrieve our pickup.
We drove home to Juneau
via the Cassiar Hwy, Alcan
and the Alaska State Ferry system from
I painted a few times along the way.
One place we had always wanted to visit
is Stewart, BC and Hyder, AK
so we made the left turn at Highway 37A
from Meziadin Junction at Milepost J 97.5.
We "ran into" the beautiful Bear Glacier, in British Columbia:
and I made a quick pencil and painting sketch:
|Bear Glacier, BC pencil 5 x 4"|
|Bear Glacier, BC oil on linen plein air sketch 8 x 6 inches|
Matt took a couple of photos
while I was working (it was pretty chilly,
so I am bundled up):
Back home, found a piece of Masonite that I had gessoed black.
Sketched in general guides with my pastel pencil.
And ... the result:
|Bear Glacier, BC oil on Masonite panel 18 x 11.75|
Thank you so much for viewing!
Hope you are all having a good summer -
Solstice is almost here!
