Debbie and I spent two marvellous days on Manitoulin Island last weekend and I managed to find time for two paintings. Unfortunately the battery in my camera died and I have misplaced the charger so I had to wait for them to dry enough to scan them.
This is the gate for the lane leading to my brother-in-law's home. Bill's house has a magnificent view across Lake Manitou of the Cup and Saucer. I have the gateway a bit narrow and the sun from different directions but I am happy with this. It was a beautiful day but the shadows were moving faster than I was painting so I got a bit confused.
I had a few hours to kill in Little Current so I headed out towards Whitefish falls looking for rocks, water, and pine trees to paint. There are lots of great views however very few places to pull off the highway to paint. This was painted at a boat launch at the narrows at the top of La Cloche Island. Locals call it Swift Current but I couldn't find any reference to it on any map. The scenery here was awesome.
