Cassie Cape and Shediac New Brunswick Photo Excursion

Yesterday was an incredible day! I decided to go for a drive along the water near Shediac and Cassie Cape which is just about 30 minutes away from where I live now. It was a beautiful sunny day which has been somewhat rare recently. As you can see, there is not much snow left here but still cold enough for ice. Nothing compared to the normal seasonal temperatures for the area. According to some of the local bird reports, there were a couple of snowy owls in the area. Unfortunately, I did not see them. A bit disappointing but the color of the water more than makes up for it. One thing that I can not get over is the color of the water here. It is the most intense blue! The different degrees of blue make my fingers itch to paint.
 I hope that you find these images pleasing and look forward to any comments.

Dec Floral Forum Project

Quick update from the Black Berry. This was the Floral Forum project from Dec. As you can see I am a bit behind. LoL Great project concept and the references were beautiful. I chose a different reference pic and changed it. Solely for educational purposes. Need all the help I can get. This image is aprox. 8x10 which tends to be my favorite size. Painted using Derwent Inktense Watersoluble Pencils for the first time. Have to confess at first they were troublesome but the more I used them the better I liked them. The colors are very vibrant. Unlike watercolor pencils the color sets fast and permanent. So beware! Having said that, you can really achieve some nice layers of color. Overall very pleased(cause they were not cheap) and enjoy using them.
