Late August Day – Seaview, Prince Edward Island

14 Oct

There was something magical about the day.  It was the first real indication the season was getting ready to change.  That summer was fading and a new season would soon be upon us.  Even the clouds seemed somehow different.  The sun had a warm orange glow casting a golden hue on the fields. The wind was active, whipping the clouds across the St. Lawrence towards us.  The clouds were heavy, potentially full of rain with brighter fuller clouds peeking out above them. Glorious!  The visible bits of sky were a lighter shade of blue than on the previous days. And the ocean well, was deep blue and turquoise. Intense with white caps rushing towards the shore.  The air smelled wonderful.  The sound of the waves crashing so captivating.  A truly beautiful late August summer’s day.

 

This was our last full day on the island.  The guests had already begun travelling back to their homes across the globe.  We reveled in this last vacation day.  Attempting to slow the day down so we could take in every single moment.  It seems only natural that something about this day and this feeling would be a natural choice to capture for a wedding celebration painting.   The photo above represents only half or so of the actual painting.  I have started the water, and in acrylic, this stage is too messy looking to share.

There were so may days of photography.  So many subjects including a beautiful wedding.  Yes, somehow, this is the feeling the newlyweds want me to capture.  I have had three painting sessions on the clouds so far.  There are still some tweaking I will do once I have the waters well underway.
