watercolour 12″ × 16″ on Arches rough paper

The C-Dory sits on the calm crystal clear water of Lake Superior, in a sheltered cove on the shores of Pic Island, while we have our picnic in the brilliant sunshine on the sand.

Location; Pic Island, Ontario, Canada, on the north shore of Lake Superior.

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.

    This is really beautiful Douglas, the reflections you’ve painted in the water and on the hull of the boat are stunning!

    That little C-Dory never had such a love bestowed on it. Like my Fortuna, they do become family members after 29 years or so. Such fabulous light and reflections!
