Sweeping Landscape Paintings by Vicki Beamish

Currently located in Penticton, BC, Vicki Beamish displays her love for nature through her sweeping landscape paintings. Depicting everything from marshes to hoodoos, Vicki's work showcases an eye for detail, and an appreciation for the environment.

Painting with oil on canvas, Vicki is able to get an incredible amount of detail into each work. I’m impressed with the way the artist renders lighting, particularly in her most recent works, which feature rocky, desert environments pictured under blazing afternoon sun. The highlights and lowlights that the artist creates add both texture and realistic volume to each form, giving many of them an almost photographic appearance. It’s this same attention to detail that makes bodies of water in the artist’s works look so realistic and shiny.

Vicki is equally skilled at rendering wildlife, with cows and seagulls appearing at moments in her portfolio. Check out more of Vicki’s artworks on her website, or our previous feature for her paintings of coastal ecosystems
