One of the rare times I get to paint a fruit tree in full bloom.  The flowers only last a few days and then they blow off.

This is no doubt my favorite time of year when the Trillium come up.  This winter has been rather cold and brutal, but that has not stopped these wonderful flowers from popping up and blooming on time.  I will try to get out and paint them as much as possible before the mosquitos have their way.

The ice still has not melted and it was still quite chilly sketching, but it is very interesting to try to capture this slow transition.

The last of the ice is slowly melting but it has still cling on and is so thin and has a dark matte finish to the reflective light color of the water.  Birds have migrated back in waves and it is a welcome site.  Soon I will be back kayaking on the open water.

The snow has not fully melted but the temps are finally above freezing so I had some time to capture the transition.  The colors are still muted and fall like, but the light is much brighter, if that makes any sense.

I have been sketching watercolors in my Kayak since last fall and enjoy the low horizon line perspective it gives you.  The temps have been very nice and so it was good to get out before all the crazy summer boaters tear up the water.

The first digital sketch of spring and I tried to capture the trillium that start to emerge in early May.  I love this time of year as there are no bugs yet so you can sit in the woods and actually sketch something.

Here’s a video capture of the sketch that took about an hour and a half to draw and 2 minutes in time lapse…

The spring in Canada always seems to come late.  It teases you with nice weather and then wind, rain, snow and sleet all come at once. When leaves finally emerge, this is a great time to bring out the bright yellow and greens of early spring.  The wind picks up and the waves create a nice energy to the once frozen and static scene.
