Sketchbook watercolour study of Whiffen Spit on Vancouver Island is more of a mood than a place

Whiffen Spit Inspiration

Whiffen Spit on Vancouver Island is more of a mood than a place making it hard to describe it.

The spit is near Sooke on Vancouver Island on the West Coast of Canada.

Some watercolour sketches I did of it on January 1, 2000, the first day of the new millennium. It was stormy with this amazing light which I described as dark clouds edged with white gold light, a glowing line of light on the horizon and dark unfriendly waters. Watercolour sketch of Whiffen Spit on Vancouver IslandWatercolour sketch of Whiffen Spit on Vancouver IslandWatercolour sketch of Whiffen Spit on Vancouver IslandWatercolour sketch of Whiffen Spit on Vancouver IslandFrom September 2017, a somewhat lazier me ran my autumn photos through the photo app Waterlogue.
