Grand Manan Island – Odds and Ends

You can always count on a friendly wave when you’re on Grand Manan Island. We’ve been here for a week of relaxation following my Charlevoix workshop. The artists arrive today for a week of sketching and painting on this lovely island.

The light, the fishing villages, the rugged landscape and the constantly changing seascape are all sources of inspiration. This is an active fishing community, however, and there are plenty of visual surprises.

I’ve been keeping my hand in and here’s a sketch for a watercolour followed by the finished piece. The watercolour was done on a 12 x 16″ block of 140 lb., CP, Saunders Waterford paper.

It’s pan-fried scallops for our Welcome Dinner tonight at the Marathon Inn. Stay tuned for reports from our workshop.

    The forecast is for a great week of painting! Looking forward to reports of the workshop. And please… not too much about how good the lobster is.
