What colours come to mind when you think of a windswept landscape? Bright swathes of red and orange offset the greens and blues in this Strathmere scene by artist Joyce Frances Devlin. A bold orange is painted underneath the landscape – the colour peeks out from behind the scene, spills out in the foreground, and infuses the work with a sense of lively energy. Can you spot the hints of orange behind the clouds? Known for her vibrant paintings, Devlin uses vivid colour to convey the spirit and character of a place in her landscape scenes. She has lived and worked in the Ottawa region since 1965.
