This was the first painting I got to do once I arrived to town. I saw the view and decided to give it a shot. There was lots in front of me, but I opted to keep it simple and to simplify the shapes.
"Looking from Bay of Quinte" Pastel 11x14
(Juror's Choice Award)
Belleville is a small town couple of hours east of Toronto. The town is littered with historic homes and buildings. Beautiful marina looks towards Prince Edward island. There is a river running through and a beautiful walkway along. Did I mentioned that there are some serious fish in it? I saw countless giant sturgeons and carp, trout, lots of birds too, Great Blue Herons, Grackles and Cormorants. I mean those are the species I could recognise there were many more.
