1548 Open Water

The spring has come so quickly now that I won't be able to publish all of my paintings from the last days of winter...  here is one more from just a couple of weeks ago.
The rain was still a couple of hours away so I decided to make the most of the day. I am always intrigued by the reflection of light from flat and tilted surfaces; snow, ice and water. The range of colours are endless.
The sky was the colour of virga. Although the rain was reaching the surface around western Lake Ontario, it would still be two or three hours before it made the descent at Singleton Lake. When the precipitation arrived it started as heavy rain and then transformed into large flakes up to five centimeters in diameter.
