“Rathtrevor Beach”

The idyllic Rathtrevor Park is located on the oceanfront in Parksville on Vancouver Island. It is a favourite campsite for many families. As I was painting the churning waves of the incoming high tide, I could not help but repeatedly think of, and be inspired by the beautiful woodblock print by Japanese artist Hokusai, which is titled “The Great Wave off Kanagawa”. His masterpiece was completed in the 1830’s and featured crashing waves with Mount Fuji in the background.
My acrylic painting “Rathtrevor Beach” is completely different in style, with incoming waves and the Coastal Mountains of British Columbia in the distance . The following photos show the progress as the painting comes to life.
