Canadian forest scene - something different for me!

Demo painting canada

Canada, 15" x 11"

A painting from a recent one to one workshop I did online.  Something new for me as I don't normally do lakes, fir trees, but this was a nice challenge and I might end up doing more of these when I tire of boats/street scenes - you never know where art takes you in a virtual way.  What attracted me to the source photo was the fact it had a bit of everything - foreground, middle and background interest and lovely stillish reflections in the lake.  I popped in the small boat as an afterthought - I think it needed something out there on the left as a focal point and the floating log almost pointing to it.

Painted on Saunders Waterford, Cold Press, 300 gms
