1577 Windy Day

It was really a very windy day. I wanted to paint en plein air but the gusts to 40 knots or more would have blown me and the easel over. I had to retreat to the studio. There were some large trees blown down in the area including one on our property.
The water of Singleton Lake was several different shades of blue and even brown. The white caps were large and the swells rolled up the marble shreline. The turbulent stratocumulus clouds were whipping by and constantly being reshaped by the powerful winds.
Location of scene looking westerly from granite ridge in front of Singleton Lake at N44.522817 W76.105578.
