On my easel the fifth day day in Algonquin Park on Rain Lake… did another 12×12 acrylic study of the view. Painted on a canvas I had primed with a bright colour, then used up old bits of paint on to give it some more texture and colour before painting the landscape on top. You can see the flecks of unusual colours poking through. The loon really did pop up and sit there for me to quickly put down a few loose brush strokes. Painted outside except for me coming back and adding the loon’s reflection later.
