If you ever visit the West Coast of Canada, be sure to take a ferry trip with BC Ferries from Horseshoe Bay. I visited the Sunshine Coast a few times over the years, and this view is one of the many sites you will see. I love the shape of Anvil Island in the center of the painting.

This is the second time that I have used Watercolor Board, which is a piece of Watercolor Paper glued to a hard cardboard substrate. No stretching is required. The painting surface is a bit different from watercolor paper in that it seems to absorb the pigment quicker. However once you get used to it, you may want to switch over and never have to stretch watercolor paper again.
