Grand Lake

7"X5"Oil in board

This could be "Fall Colour 5" but I have strayed from the Niagara Peninsula here so I thought I would leave it out of that series. Last weekend we were supposed to be going up to Achray which is in the northeast quadrant of Algonquin Park. Circumstances intervened and we didn't go. I was feeling a little deprived having set my heart on doing lots of painting up there, so I decided to pull a photo from a previous visit. I don't often do oils from photos as it is virtually impossible to paint direct from the screen with my current setup and I don't find printed photos nearly so easy to work from. However, this turned out better than I hoped.
