British Columbia Lodge, Oils Underpainting

A friend sent me a photograph taken by her nephew of a fishing lodge he enjoyed in British Columbia. The photo is showing an aerial view taken from the airplane as they were starting their landing. The trees alone drew me to the photo and thought how much I would love spending time in country this beautiful.

The underpainting, using alkyd oils, was begun last night with a bit more done today. I'm waiting for the paint to dry before developing the shapes of the structures. There is still a ferry boat, small boats and boat ramps, plus an airplane to add to the scene. I hope I can meet the challenge.
