"Second Beach, Stanley Park" by Toni Onley
Another great chronicler of west coast life and landscapes was Toni Onley. Famous for his simple yet moody watercolours, Toni made a good living as an artist – which is a rarity in this game. I really like this rain splattered view of the North Shore Mountains from Second Beach. Even though on the surface T-Onley’s style and technique appear polar opposite to my own, as usual, I will spend the week showing you the similarities between myself and this great Canadian artist. Similarity #1 – we both like Second Beach. This is going to be easy!
