Tofino British Columbia Water Colour Color Plein Air



I recently spent 6 days hangin in Tofino BC with my wife and brother-in-law. Good times indeed. Lots of surfin, swimmin, hiking, eating and yes even some drinking. We went on a whale tour and saw grey and humpback whales. Incredible!

Heres a plein air watercolour I did on the beach. Between drinking scotch and painting this I didnt notice the tide come in and I got stuck on a rocky cliff thingy. Got back safely with my legs banged up enough to prove I was havin some good fun.

This is the largest watercolour Ive done yet. The original image is 12x19 inches.
