Today was one of those days that Mary and I just hit the road, investigating new painting locations. We had ideas that were closer to home, but ended up following the Ottawa River all the way to Stonecliffe. There were a lot of beautiful vistas, but they were either along the highway or private. We did find a wonderful provincial park and painted by the boat launch.
A friend had asked me what I had learned from repeating the last painting on location. I thought about that while away to Victoria's graduation. The answer really came while painting this one - I learned that I fiddle and fuss too much, and really want to paint more shapes with just definite simple strokes. So that was my aim for today.
