Oil on Gallery Wood Panel

Discovered this beautiful vista, canoeing at the Kawartha's and hiking through a portage that led to the Black River.  This lake view was taken on a bridge where the water ran through and cascaded down to a roaring waterfall!  It felt like we were alone in the world!  We had a packed lunch in our knapsacks and we walked closer to the waterfall and had lunch on a big bolder.  The sound of the water was loud yet quite meditative.  We enjoyed our quiet lunch watching the water run through, moving along through rocks, cascading down to a quiet stream before it meets up on to the lake below.

I start my paintings with a red acrylic wash, then once dry, I divided the canvas into 9 equal squares to help me plan my focal point.  I then draw in my main shapes with a chalk pastel, which once happy with my composition, I paint the outline with black or red acrylic paint. Layers of paint is then applied focusing on the main focal points first.  I use walnut alkyd medium to help increase the drying time which allows me to add more layers and glazing the next day.  I finish of the painting by painting in the sky in fast gestural strokes and then go back to the overall painting adding highlights and shadows.  The painting is then varnished after about 4-6 weeks and painting on the sides with a solid black paint finish.

The sound of the water even loud can still be quite meditative.  Watching water run through, maneuvering through rocks, cascading down to a quiet stream can bring moments of tranquility, silence and peace.
