Fog Colours

Some of you may recall a painting from a few weeks ago similar to the following. Yes, it's the same place -- the tail-end of Lake Glensevern at Herring Cove Provincial Park -- with a slightly different composition. I really enjoy the big, dark masses of spruce that dot the barrier beach by the lake; they make it easy to create an interesting composition. More interesting this time, however, were the rich colors in the foreground grasses. Thanks to a heavy fog and overcast, the colors seemed much more intense.

As we slide from late summer into fall, I'm sure we'll see even more color in those beautiful grasses.

I am off to St Andrews, NB, to teach a workshop next week, but I'll try to post at least once from there.
