IMG_2696 (1)Painting No.1 Evening, Lake Kioshkokwi

I went out this evening after dinner, down to the trestle at the east end of Kioshkokwi (Lake of Gulls).  The light appeared clearer up there; and the colours, while softening to shades of pastel, kept a kind of solidity found only in PreCambrian Shield landscapes.  I painted the hills bathed in the light of the waning sun.

It was a hectic day.  We drove 29 km into the bush to the Kiosk access point.  The site at the lake was great, the atmosphere tranquil – perfect!
