Smoke Lake

Acrylic on canvas board.

On the hardwood lookout trail in Algonquin park I found this beautiful view of the lake framed by trees on both sides. I did this quick sketch in acrylic paint.

I would normally use oil paint as it has a richer feel to it and I look of oil I personally find more satisfying. Acrylics are what I use for plein air painting as they are far easier to clean up. I tried oils recently and found the clean up task to be a pain in the a%&.

Thanks for visiting.
