Tom Thomson Was A Weatherman at Bon Echo Provincial Park

I will be doing this presentation at the Bon Echo PP Amphitheater on Saturday August 13th... in the Amphitheatre at 7 pm... It will be fun. Come and support the park...

The above is a study of one of Tom's records that he observed. There is a lot of meteorology in this one! The paint just flowed as I painted. On close examination Tom's brush strokes were really fast and furious. It would have been dark as well and tough to see if by lantern light or the light of the full moon. His brush picked up paint from either side of his stroke and blended them together. There were really not many double strokes so the colours still remained unmixed.
