Courtenay Bay Project (Yes, Another One)

Courtenay Bay painting in progressI just started working on another large Courtenay Bay painting. Because I love Courtenay Bay. In the image above, I have started to work on the lay-out of the canvas, roughly charting the placement of the mixed media elements and later oil paint detail.
