“Ucluelet Skies”, Acrylic on Studio Canvas, 24x48, Michelle Morelan 2009
I am on my way to Ucluelet for work, and have been thinking about the coming of the fall season. It is especially evident on the west coast of Vancouver Island, where the temperate rain forest creates misty wet conditions made only for ferns and mushrooms. The skies are kind of eerie, and seem to cry very slow tears.
Note: This piece is done in sepia, browns, whites and umbers with just a touch of blue (Paynes Gray)…the computer image does not reproduce well, showing it on the blue side. Browns are the toughest colour to scan or photograph.
