I love old travel posters. I am reworking some of my Alaska watercolors in an updated travel poster motif. They are paintings I did during my days working on cruise ships. It’s been a fun project. Give me another day or two.
My ship winds its way past the San Juan Islands, north of Seattle, as we head towards Alaska. Stuart Island, USA is the northern-most and last island we pass. We turn northeasterly, towards Canada’s Inside Passage. This point is aptly named, Turn Point with Turn Point Lighthouse. I’ve sketched these islands often, and decided to add some color to this one. They are quite picturesque islands, even on gloomy days such as this.
