We had beautiful weather last week up here in Northern Ontario. Balmy twenty degrees (celsius) temperature and clear blue skies. I decided to head down the highway to Katherine Cove, one of my favourite places on the Lake Superior coastline.
I've been painting in my studio all winter and actually had quite a productive run with small and large paintings. But getting outside near the big lake with warm weather and sunshine was a welcomed
relief.
I spent two days hiking and sketching and came back with some good stuff. The thing about working outside is getting the paint on the canvas before the light changes. That can happen pretty quickly on the Lake Superior shore line.
A slight change in the wind and the water changes colour and the same things happens to the sky.
At times the Lizard Islands seem just a short distance from shore and then they just sort of disappear in the water and seem to be miles away. It's just amazing how the atmosphere changes the perspective - there's power in this place filled with magic.
These paintings of Katherine Cove were painted on sight. Some of the canvas is left exposed and minimum colours were used to express the simple beauty of this place.
