Southampton Art School - Winds, Waves and Weather - Huron Shore

We moved down to the jetty that supported the Saugeen Range Light. The onshore breeze and fog kept us cool. Jean and Linda found it to be too cool after a while and moved inland out of the chilly breeze. The conditions were ideal for plein air painting.

I panted the shore line extending northward from the jetty. I had painted some of the driftwood before and I recognized a couple of the tree trunks that were still there from years previous. I did not include them in this particular painting. If it were not for the tops of the hydro poles which I did include, this scene could be from the remotest and wildest part of Canada. The tops of the poles give the urban setting away.
