I painted this coastguard vessel in Esquimalt overlooking a very busy Victoria Harbor. This is definately one of my favorite spots to paint. To my left is the arbutus trees I painted the next day. 10"x14" in oils
My name's Naomi Grindlay, originally from Southern Africa, made my way to Canada just over a decade ago. Great move! I love Canada! Especially Vancouver Island, spent a fair bit of my time painting en pleine aire, one of my favorite pastimes.
The paintings on this blog are all painted en pleine aire and the still life are painted from life.
