Studio 365: Day 328

The Chief

Stawamus Chief Acrylic and Plaster 78″ x 64″

Since I have not been in the studio today, and in follow up to yesterday’s Lascaux Cave, I thought I would post this painting from a few years back of the magnificent face of the Stawamus Chief in the Stawamus Chief Provincial Park in Squamish BC. Although on a different scale to the Lascaux Cave, the technique once again used a combination of Polyfilla and paint, this time acrylic rather than watercolour.

The Chief

There are three hiking trails on the Chief that take you to three different peaks where the view from each across Howe Sound simply takes your breath away.

Chief iii

With the new Sea to Sky Gondola however now it is possible to experience the same views with a little less effort, but definately with a lot less sense of achievement.

Chief ii

Here you can see the three peaks of the Chief viewed from the gondola on the way down to earth.
