  3. 3. Emily Carr (December 13, 1871 – March 2, 1945) was a Canadian artist and writer heavily inspired by the indigenous people of the Pacific Northwest Coast. Her career as an artist began at a very young age. With her parents dead at her early teens, her guardian, lawyer James Lawson, gave her permission to study at the California School of Design, in San Francisco, and she went to many schools after. In 1912, a year after returning to Canada, she made a visit to Tanu and Skedans on the Queen Charlotte Islands (Haida Gwaii). There she was inspired and produced many paintings of the lush West Coast Wilderness. In 1927 she travelled to Eastern Canada where she met the Group of Seven. After this meeting, her art was "discovered". She became an honorary member of the Group of Seven and had many successful exhibitions. Emily Carr
  4. 4. Helen Galloway McNicoll (1879–1915) was a Canadian impressionist painter. She was born in Toronto to parents David McNicoll and Emily Pashley. McNicoll became deaf in childhood because of of scarlet fever, so she learnt to develop other skills like lip-reading, playing the piano and her talents as an artist. She attended the Art Association of Montreal, studying under William Brymner from 1899. In 1902 she moved to England to study in London at the Slade School under Philip Wilson Steer. Later she studied in St. Ives, Cornwall with Algernon Talmadge. This is where she met Dorothea Sharp, a fellow artist who became a lifelong friend with her. They traveled together and shared studio space, as well as posed for each other's paintings. Helen died in Swanage, Dorset, where she had made her home, at only age 36. An obituary had described her as "one of the most profoundly original and technically accomplished of Canadian artists". Helen McNicoll
  5. 5. Ross was born on June 16, 1959 in West Vancouver. He credits art teachers, Fred Duel and Dorte' Froslev for providing a solid art foundation and for guiding his skills for what would become a viable career path. Following graduation, Ross attended the studio art program at Capilano College and studied print making with internationally renowned print maker Wayne Eastcott. Ross continued his education at the Emily Carr College of Art. Ross is a artist who has exhibited annually since 1995. His work can be found in numerous private, corporate and public collections in United States and in Canada. Ross is the father of two adult children, Sam and Sophie, who have been a source of support and inspiration to his art career. Ross currently paints from his studio in Vancouver and lives with his wife, Caron, and his dog, Howie, in Horseshoe Bay, BC. Ross Penhall
  6. 6. Tree Trunk. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . By Emily Carr This painting was done on 1931. Emily Carr used bright colors to show the the details in the tree, and dark shadows to make the tree pop up even more. The lines were curved to show the movements. The whole painting look pretty much smooth, only on the dark, shady parts on the tree you can see rough texture. Emily Carr made this a upright painting, which mae me feel like the tree is growing upwards and I think the painting's mood is very energetic.
  7. 7. Above the Gravel Pit. . . . . . . . . . . By Emily Carr This painting was done on 1937, with oil on canvas. This painting really got some movement in it! The whole picture looks like as if it's moving. The shape of the landscape, the color of the sky... Everything looks as if it's moving. Emily Carr used multiple colours for the sky, which made the painting looks even more complex. The land has a natural curvy shape to it, that made it look twisted and cool. This movements doesn't make any sense really, but it looks really cool to me.
  8. 8. Fishing. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .By Helen McNicoll This painting was done on 1907. It's feeling is distinctively relaxed and fun. Helen used playfu, pastel colors and a nice composition to show how much fun the kids were having. The light faintly shows it's early afternoon, and the kids were sitting under the shade of a tree. The lines are mostly short strokes (typical impressioniost painting style), but tehy worked well for the shine on the river and the short grass on the ground.
  9. 9. The Apple Gatherer. . . . . . . . . . . By Helen McNicoll This painting was done on 1911. Helen McNicoll used bright colours to represent where the sunlight is hitting, and darker colours on the shady part of the tree where the gatherer is harvesting the apples. The texture of this painting is mostly rough-for example, the leaves and the grasses.
  10. 10. Pink Light. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . By Ross This painting was done on 2008 with oil on canvas. The colour of this painting is Penhall mostly dark, but because of the dark parts, where the light is hitting really caught my attention. The curvy texture on the tree is very unique, which make the trees look very 3 dimensional. Ross Penhall also used the space well that the art looks pleasant. I really love the mysteriousness of this painting.
  11. 11. Golden Gate II. . . . . . done.on.2008.with . . . . .

The texture of this painting is mostly smooth and puffy, but on the tree trunks it's a little bit more rough. I love the light in the picture! Like the name-Golden Gate, the light is warm yellow and is coming from a very nice angle.
