Painting From Memory

On the last morning of our visit to the cabin on Lake Of The Woods this summer, we went for an early morning paddle in the kayaks. On the way home I was paddling into this view. I loved the feeling of all the shapes melting into the misty distance. Later in the day I did a quick study from my memory and a while later I did this version. I like that it captures quite a bit of the feeling of that morning. I really like the feeling of the light in the sky and it’s reflection in the background shore. The closest piece of land was painted using thalo blue and cadmium scarlet, a pair of complementaries that I had just learned about from my Stephen Quiller workshop. I loved the rich dark that they produced.
