One of the pleasures of hiking the East Coast Trail is that it’s well maintained. If you reach a boggy part, there will usually be a raised wooden path to cross on. Often it’s covered in chicken wire so that you won’t slip.
I never liked hiking in Ontario – hot, humid, too many bugs. I’d rather be in the water. But hiking in Newfoundland is another thing completely. Crazy views. Crazy good workout. And no bugs. Did you hear that? NO BUGS!!!
Painted for day 21 of the 30paintingsin30days art challenge from a photo I took in April. For this one I experimented with an underpainting made by using hard pastels, then dipping a paintbrush in rubbing alcohol and painting over the pastel to blend it. Then I used some high intensity pastel on top when it dried. Pretty fun stuff.
