More Plein Air Sketching

In an effort to maximize the R-Pod we've been taking mid week jaunts, locally, in our part of Alberta. Last week, from August 17th to 20th we revisited Beauvais Lake Provincial Park. Staying there isn't full on "glamping" because there are no water or sewer hook-ups, but electricity and cell phone service is pretty nice!

While Bill was off fishing on some creek, under some bridge, I hung out at the campsite where I made this sketch:

Another day, while Bill fished the Castle River, I sketched Castle Falls. This spot has many deep pools and folks were taking advantage of them and the hot weather by jumping off the high bank opposite where I sat making this sketch:

On this particular trip Bill launched his new toy ...

With it's quiet, electric motor it's a rather lovely thing to cruise on water and see loons and swans. And from it, one morning, Bill caught a rainbow trout which very shortly thereafter made a tasty, fresh lunch; so delicate, and delicious.

Please contact me at alice@artbysaltiel.com to purchase either of these sketches. They are available, unframed at $100. each.
