Today I sat on the dock with my paints and sketched the island across from ours. I took an excellent class with Shari Blaukopf in June at Montebello Quebec and since then I’ve been working on foliage. Here I’ve tried to do the whole thing in one wash, varying the colour as I went across and then coming in later with darks. The lake provides lots of opportunity for practice at foliage. As well, the big expanses of sky and water make for more challenges. But with the rest of the summer ahead, I’m going to head out in the little boat with the anchor and see what I can find.
