watercolour 12″ × 16″ on Arches rough paper

Location: Aguasabon River at Terrace Bay, Ontario, on the north shore of Lake Superior.

This summer the water level has been low, and this particular August afternoon the river was in a sleepy mood.

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’m always impressed and full of admiration with your ‘magnifiques’ north shore of lake Superior paintings, Douglas.
    This one is excellent. I particularly love the shades and reflections on the water and the grass in the foreground. All this gives such a peaceful atmosphere to your work.

    Beautiful work!
    It looks so peaceful. I like that I can tell it’s the time of day with “long shadows”.

    Another stunner! Love the way you have done the grass ( did you use masking?) and the reflections :)

  • Hi Fiona. Yes, I used a little masking on the grass, but not a lot. No masking anywhere else though. Thanks for your comment.
