Niagara-on-the-Lake


Sorolla often uses a lot of colours for water, and yet has a softness to the scene. I set out to attempt something in that vein, but my scene turned out much stronger - being after all big old Lake Ontario - and of course, using thalo blue might have something to do with it! We were in Niagara on the Lake on a warm day and the water actually had a teal tint to it. Nevertheless, I am pleased with the results.
