Lake waterPosted: May 29, 2015
Here’s a tip for watercolour painters: bring extra water if you go out painting. I should really carry a jug in the car but I don’t, so today when I needed some clean water I took the stairs down to the lake and filled my cup. Now this wasn’t for drinking — the water from Lac St. Louis isn’t clean enough for that. But if you don’t mind little bits of seaweed floating around, it’s fine for painting. The yacht club in Pointe Claire is starting to have that busy summer feeling and that’s what I tried to convey today. The water was dead calm so it was a good day to paint, although probably not a good day for sailing. Painted on Arches paper, 140 lb CP, 15″ x 11″.
