 This painting was done a few weeks ago at the 3 hour painting competition at the Birthplace of BC  Gallery, here in Fort Langley. I painted it in acrylics, outdoors, on one of the hottest days of the summer. Blending the colours was challenging, to say the least. I wasn't totally unhappy with the results but I did feel that oils might be a better medium to use for the subject.

I borrowed the painting back from the gallery and over-painted it today in oils. I think it looks a lot more polished and it didn't take long, as I had already made most of the decisions in acrylics. Once its dry, it will go back to the Birthplace of BC Gallery.
