Fundy Tides

Recently, we had the opportunity to visit the Bay of Fundy once again. We drove the car  to a place called Rainy Cove and found a place off the road to park. Once parked we walked out on the dry ocean floor and made our way along the cliffs. The cliffs are carved by the water currents in the bay and make a spectacular sight. 
It is very important to keep an eye on the shore and on the waters edge to ensure you don't become trapped away from shore by the strong fast moving water.
The air was cool with the breeze blowing from the north all morning but painting on site is always a pleasure. The painting is on small panels that fit easily in a pack for travelling. 
The panels have been primed with three coats of gesso.
 The gesso seals the surface of the wood.  
Time is allowed to make multiple paintings from the same location.


 A few short hours and three paintings later we pack and go as the rushing water of the Bay approached. Check Minas BasinMooseland or Two Sides for more about painting around the Bay of Fundy.
