“McIntyre Bluff, Vaseux Lake”
By: J. Kelso Turnbull
Watercolour, 14”x 20”
J. Kelso Turnbull is a Naramata artist specializing in watercolour landscapes, and is an active member of the Naramata Arts Studio. As a teenager, he attended courses at the Glasgow School of Art, in Scotland.
Vaseux Lake is one of the iconic landscapes of the Okanagan Valley. I feel transparent watercolour washes are particularly suited to capturing the effect of the bright summer morning light on the cliffs and vineyards around McIntyre Bluff and their ever changing colours.
His watercolours have been exhibited extensively, and five watercolour landscapes (including this one) are currently on display at Lang’s Vineyard wine shop gallery.
