Rain Lake : Day 3 rain and me

Rain Lake Cabin Day 3 – rain and me – 12×12 acrylic – AVAILABLE

On my easel the third day day in Algonquin Park on Rain Lake… did a quick 12×12 acrylic study of the view. Painted on a cool underpainting, working from dark to light. I was just about finished when the clouds opened up and started raining on me. There was nothing I could do about the raindrops, which lifted the partially dried acrylic off. But I kind of like it, the natural rain drops from Rain Lake captured on my painting.

Drying off flat in the cabin, as upright the raindrops started to run down the painting taking paint with it!

Was our “worst weather,” a few scattered showers which drove us inside to play cards for a couple hours. A welcome rest after the big portage to McCraney Lake the day before.
