Plein Air Paintings From Bow Lake by Sharon Lynn Williams

"Bow Lake View", 10 x 8" plein air oil on board

This July I had the privilege to be selected to have a show at Numtijah Lodge at Bow Lake along the Icefields Highway, along with my "plein air partner in paint" Patti Dyment. The location is magnificent and painting on location there is just a slice of heaven. This painting faithfully capture the view from the front of the lodge. There is a snow and glacier field at the top of the mountain that extends for miles, and is a primary feature along the amazing Icefields Parkway.

This time I took a more close up view to try to capture the incredible texture of this huge glacier.

This is the view from the end of the lake. I really loved the shape of this peak with the glacier peacefully nestling on top.

The wind had picked up in the morning, so I painted this from the window of the dining room at the lodge. The sun was sparkling down through the evergreens and lighting up the wildflowers growing in their shelter.
