Tim River, Algonquin
I spent the week painting with a great friend and artist Lawrence Nickle. I started this particular effort around 11 am while the trees were still in shadow and the wind in the valley was fitfully calm. The water surface was smooth and black during a lull in the breeze but was slightly rippled and reflected the sky whenever a fit of wind worked its way through the valley. The calm and flat surface relfected the dark trees of the far shore of the lake.
