This past weekend the race to finish a painting to capture the natural beauty and Steveston's historic sites had over 100 participants.
I was really pleased with my draw of the location for my scene, a beautiful view of the river and boats with some fall colours starting to turn the cottonwoods across the river.
I tried mostly to maintain some defining shapes to the cluster of boats but I think I should have just simplified the whole scene. I used the full 3 hours but had lots of time to relax into my process and step away for short breaks. Beautiful glorious sunning day, it was a joy to be out there despite some small frustrations and anxious moments of the challenge.
