DPW Painting Challenge - Lawren Harris inspiration

Today, Mary and I decided to do this week's DPW Challenge, which to paint something in the style of an artist we admire. Since the challenge is based in the US, we decided to give some Canadian input and picked the Group of Seven's Lawren Harris, whose work we both love and admire. His work has such clean simplicity, his colours are so joyful. I often go to the AGO in Toronto to visit the Group of Seven collection and have copied one of his Arctic scenes for learning purposes. This scene is from my summer visit to Tofino, Vancouver Island.

I love the Group of Seven also. I have not picked my artist yet but plan to do the challenge this weekend. Lovely painting. Way to represent!

It's always inspiring to copy the work of an artist you admire!

Hope you are well, Marina!
