The Peace Country is beautiful all together, but some places have reserved a particular, timeless beauty that seeps into your pores. Such a place is the Peace Valley Guest Ranch, a haven of peace, quiet and nature maintained by the Allen family of Grimshaw, Alberta. I’m going to use big pictures and few words to show you we were excited to visit the Ranch for a watercolour retreat:
Carolyn spent a couple of days in Salmon Arm. Beautiful weather, beautiful views!
Judy and Carolyn are organizing a watercolour painters retreat with the Peace Valley Guest Ranch near Berwyn, Alberta. We’ll paint, ride, eat great food, talk art around the campfire and enjoy the beautiful Peace River and the valley.
Trial number 2 was done with traditional watercolour techniques ie watercolour paint and miskit.
Judy was experimenting and tried a combination of watercolour paint and crayon to capture the atmosphere of a late evening kayak ride across a lake in Ontario. The result was- interesting.
Judy was going to finish this painting by adding a background colour. Carolyn says, “Leave it!” Any comments?
