Desolation sound highlights

Plein Air painting with Robert Genn + 6 keen students touring Desolation sound by boat was pure magic! great scenery, instruction, + great inspiration!  for Bob's trip summary from his weekly newsletter...

whales greeted us 15 minutes out of campbell river

fabulous scenery, I took over 600 photos!

gorgeous flowers and colours

painting on board the boat.. do you detect a difference between my easel and Bob Genn's?

great waterfalls and vistas

Bob and company!

Our boat, the columbia III, and our keen group of painters!
