This painting is titled Kwai Lake it to like Mariwood Lake, two paintings below this one, is also in Strathcona Park, central Vancouver Island.
This scene was also inspired by a photo I had taken a few years back, but have only just painted it in the last few weeks.
I have exercised a fair bit of ‘artistic licence’ on this one bringing the background mountains forward a little, a bit of changing their skyline and shorting the lake that would be seen from this vantage point. How ever the trees are there and a few more.
I have hiked and camped this area may times snowshoeing in winter and hiking during the rest of the year. Often you might not see another person while at other times you may encounter many people as Kwai Lake being on the way to the popular climb to Mt. Albert Edward, a whole adventure in its self.
It measures 24 x 30 x 1.5 painted in oil over acrylic and sealed with a uv protectant, original art work.
This painting is available for purchase for $ 545.00.
Thank you for taking a look, JJ
