Last summer I went on a little trip along the Sea-To-Sky Highway to find a place to do some painting. At some point not too far from Squamish I found a service road that led up to a clearing. Here I had a beautiful Southward view of the steep mountainsides leading to the waters edge. As well as a patch of highway you can see the railroad close to the water. I worked against time to paint the shadows in the trees as they were slowly changing towards the end of the sketch, which took about two hours.
