From an August 16th 1952, article in The Charlottetown Guardian headlined “Visiting Artist Revels In Landscape Charm of Island”: Mr. Campbell Tinning, Montreal artist, is currently visiting Prince Edward Island doing a series of paintings… He has done water colour paintings of the Provincial Building, the Travel Bureau and old houses along Great George Street, Green Gables, Keppoch Beach and other places.” Mr. Tinning described Prince Edward Island as “the most paintable part of the country… The red soil contrasts with the green and blue of the sea… The scale of colours are extremely provocative to the imagination.” He added: “There is so much here for the landscape painter… The Island’s scenery is a more universally beautiful and quiet landscape than found elsewhere.”
