Arbutus by the Trail – small contemporary landscape painting

Low November light drifts across the large rocks from the south. The warm hues gather further visual warmth from the Arbutus trees beside the trail.

The loose and strong impressionist style brushstrokes of this study give a clear sense of the swiftly moving winter light in the briefest of moments. If we are to blink the moment the will pass and the forest would again be shrouded in the dull greys predominant during a west coast winter. This painting in a reminder that there are moments with dazzling magic in this winter rain forest. We just need to catch them.

New Release – August Morning Reef Bay landscape painting

With November winter weather settling it, this landscape is a pleasant escape.

The harsh summer late morning light has the ocean and distant islands playing second fiddle to the dark dank seaweed-draped sandstone reefs. Yet, the music of a summer sea is played with its usual robust notes.

Pitcher Apples Pears still life painting

With heavy coastal rain just starting to ease it seems a perfect time to release this warm and vibrant still life painting. This 16 x 20 inch oil on canvas painting is a study of whites and how they are always leaning towards one colour or another. The tastes, smells and texture of this still life slid onto the canvas in loose wet-on-wet brushstrokes.

Arbutus on Mt. Parke – landscape oil painting

Morning lifts heavy mist from the highest places while the sun dances cheek-to-cheek with the late October shadows. As these arbutus trees extend themselves in prayer, angels dissipate into the warmth gathering on top of the Mayne Island Mt. Parke ridge.

Seaside Mayne Island – Large Canadian Landscape Oil Painting

Some moments are impossible to forget. Such is a late afternoon walk in this location on the shores of Mayne Island. Meander along a trail by the sea, taking time to stop and let the moment settle in. This large contemporary Canadian west coast landscape painting is a full 60 x 36 inch oil on canvas with 1.5 inch edges that will be painted as desired by the purchasing art collector.

SEASIDE MAYNE ISLAND

Seaside Mayne Island 60 x 36 oil on canvas by Terrill Welch 2013_10_15 041

[Update February 2017 – this painting is now sold. View other available work HERE.]

I want o be clear, this painting is five feet tall and three feet wide. As a contemporary Canadian landscape painter, I only do a few paintings this size because I still want room to move in my work space. Yet, I can’t seem to resist lugging these grand-size canvases back to the studio and letting loose with the paint. There is also a smaller 10 x 8 inch study of this same scene which is now in a private collection.

This will be one of the paintings featured at my November 9th & 10th Open Studio event.
