In the foreground, I’m sketching the much loved BAKE APPLES that appear in spring along the byways of Newfoundland. Our B&B hostess served us her own deee-licious bake apple preserves! Each plant bears one raspberry-like fruit, orange in colour. It takes patience and a lot of bending over to pick enough fruit for a batch of jam.
A 45-minute walk along this path brings you to the boat which tours the spectacular Western Brook Pond fjords. Or at least that’s the time set out in the travel brochures. Lloyd put his back out handling our luggage the night before, so we were hobbling along at a snail’s pace, worrying that the boat would leave without us.
I’m looking forward to getting the oils out tomorrow, and doing an initial light wash to get the painting underway.
