Schooner Cove 13.5in x 18in Watercolour On W/C Paper
Heidi Lambert, AFCA, CSPWC, NWWS
Heidi is primarily a realistic and representational watercolour artist who has been painting for over 30 years.
Heidi is a Gold Medal award winner in the Federation of Canadian Artists and has received many awards from National and International Exhibitions.
Heidi has also worked in oils, but finds that watercolour is her medium of choice, as she likes to always take advantage of the fluidity of the medium. She injects each painting with rich colour and deep values, choosing subject matter where strong light and shadow are a factor.
Heidi says; “My Landscapes and Seascapes are of areas I have come to know intimately. Some of my favorite subjects are of the outer West Coast; I love the ocean and the ebb and flow of the tides”.
The paintings in this exhibition are both of the West Coast of Vancouver Island. "Schooner Cove" is one of my favourite spots, just north of Long Beach. A quiet secluded cove that changes dramatically with the tides and if you are patient, you will be able to observe the little sandpipers darting among the rocks.
The real-life inspiration for "Crystal Cove" can be found at one end of McKenzie Beach not far from Tofino, I could not resist the beautiful light and drama that happens when the sun sets.
