Spent the past few days with White Dog Gallery in Whistler in a local event - Painting the Peaks. The first day I worked in oils and did four 8x10 oil sketches - two I will take home to see what comes of them and two I scrubbed.

The next day I painted in acrylics. The light was off and on flat and the peaks a long way off so I sketched and painted the Whistler peaks as accurately as I could then pushed the colour and added different foregrounds from my imagination. Trying to project my view closer and to give the piece punch. It was not a day I would normally do plein air of this subject because of the light but this was an "event" I was in so I tried to make the best of it. Three one hour 11x14 sketches. I did one more but it is going to the burn pile.
