Watercolor painting on Arches 12″ × 16″ cold pressed 140lb paper

Typical early morning scene on Walkers Lake, just west of Schreiber Ontario on the north shore of Lake Superior.

The dew sparkles on the leaves as the sun’s rays slowly warm the air, evaporating the mist. The gentle lapping of the water against the side of his aluminum boat welcomes the early rising fisherman to this northern paradise.

Born in Essex, England, living in Canada now, north of Lake Superior in Schreiber, Ontario.
Painting in watercolours since I was 8 years old, and after a career in the field of photography, mostly with Konica Canada, I am finally an artist, full time.

    I like the grey misty dawn impression, Douglas. The wet-in-wet effect, has worked well here.
    Simple and effective.

    The simplest a painting is, the better it is…Your painting is a perfect example of this.
    Your limited palette of greens and blue/greys is pure magic with the haze. All gives an atmosphere full of mystery only troubled, it seems, with the birds chirping…..
    An excellent painting Douglas

  • thanks for such a beautiful comment, Corinne.
