"Canoe Meadows Fall" plein air oil painting by Sharon Lynn Williams


"Canoe Meadows Fall", 9 x 12" plein air oil on board
$495 beautifully framed

I did this painting after the t-pee on my Kananaskis paintout. It was interesting because the trees in the foothills had gone brown due to lack of rain in August and September, but as soon as we turned into K Country the colour bounced back to vibrant yellows and oranges.
I have been very busy since my daughter moved back home from Ontario. I am thrilled that she is living with us until she finds herself an apartment, but my days are more full. I never got a chance to post the last of my plein air's before the snow hit, so will do so this week.

Enjoy!

"Alberta's History", 9 x 12" plein air oil painting
$250 unframed, click here to purchase

I went on a painting trip with my good friend Nadien and as we approached Kananaskis Country, we noticed that the Stoney Nakota Casino had erected a series of t-pees on their property. Having never painted a t-pee before, I was keen to give it a go. It was great fun to paint from life -I love the light bouncing around on the canvas.

Enjoy!

This is a spot very close to my home, perfect for a quick one after dinner. It was quite fun to paint as the sky just kept on changing, quite the show. I hope I captured some of the magnificence of what the Lord seems to do so easily!

"Leighton Trees", plein air oil painting by Sharon Lynn Williams

"Leighton Trees", 8 x 10" plein air oil
$395 framed in a espresso plein air framed, click here to purchase

This is the first painting I did after I tore my achilles tendon. These are the wonderful trees outside the Leighton Art Centre that seem to take on very unique characteristics depending on the day. Don't ask me why the trees on the right are different colours than those on the left as they are the same species, and I have never seen them so different before.

Enjoy!

"Colourful Afternoon", plein air oil painting by Sharon Lynn Williams


"Colourful Afternoon", 9 x 12" plein air oil
on auction at DPW beginning at $100, click here to bid

Once again I returned to one of my favorite places to paint to capture the light and colour at this country pond, which I recently found out is owned by a friend of mine. Apparently the show "Heartland" uses this beautiful spot to film in -I can certainly see why!

Enjoy!
