Peace And Quiet by Deborah Tilby
Oil 24 x 24
 
This is one of my recent 'Lockdown' paintings but the reference for it was gathered last summer while kayaking around the harbour in Brentwood Bay. It was one of those perfect days that makes one so very glad to be living somewhere this beautiful and peaceful.

Pat Bay by Deborah Tilby
Oil 18 x 36
 
This was painted from a small study done many years ago while out painting with a local group called the Al Frescoes. I came across it recently and decided to try a larger version. The study was only 6x8 and had more foreground and a completely different sky. I chose to make it long and narrow and to introduce a stormy sky to throw out the strong whites on the coastguard boats.

Time For Milking by Deborah Tilby
Oil 11 x 14
 
I spotted this scene late one afternoon while on a 3 month painting trip in England. I hope I conveyed the peacefulness and serenity that I felt while I was there.

All Girls Together by Deborah Tilby
Oil 18 x 30
 
I often walk by this farm where their pigs are allowed to live out their days and the chickens run about freely. It's a great place to paint,

Frost by Deborah Tilby
Oil 16 x 20
 
I grew up where frost on the tree branches was a common sight in the winter. Turned out to be a fun challenge to paint!

Biography
Deborah Tilby SFCA, OPA
 
I am a representational painter who works both in the studio and in the field.  Most often I am attracted first by the light and shadows which I want to capture in a simple and painterly manner, and then by textures and detail; my struggle is to find a balance between the two. It is something I am always working towards, always seeking to 'loosen up' while still capturing some of the detail that interests me. 
I was eighteen when I did my first painting, a watercolour, and I was hooked.  Watercolour captivated me for the next 25 years.  I lived in England for part of that time and loved painting  European street scenes,  attracted by the textures and subtle colours of old stone and brick and the narrow streets offering interesting perspectives.
I now live on the west coast of British Columbia and have been working in oil for many years, still painting buildings and streets but also exploring the local landscape and getting out to the many beaches, finding inspiration in boats, marinas and the sea. I am passionate about my work; I truly love it and paint every day.  Painting is a challenge, but always fascinating and deeply fulfilling.
