These are the underpaintings for 2 new paintings of a canoe at Lake Padden. I'm entranced by these 2 paintings this week.
Last week I was walking with a friend at Lake Padden right around dusk. We had our dogs with us. It was cool and cloudy and there was a lone red canoe on the otherwise still lake.
It reminded me of wonderful paintings by Peter Doig of a canoe on a lake and I couldn't wait to get home and start a painting. So I started two.
