When my husband I toured Vancouver Island in the summer of 2011, we started our tour in Victoria. This scene is a view from one of the residential areas, looking out to the Salish Sea  toward the San Juan islands. I used both brushwork and a lot of palette knife application. Hope you enjoy!

This is a very interesting piece. I really like it. Your knife work in the foreground is very intriguing. I love the colors and the feeling of flowering vegetation. It's one of my favorites.
