One Mile Lake

5x7 inches, acrylic on canvas board


I wanted to paint mountains, but sadly there are no mountains near my home, so reference images it was. This is One-Mile Lake in BC, Canada. I think this is what plein air heaven looks like, for me at least! Maybe one day I will get to travel and paint it on location...

I tried a slightly more patient approach to using acrylics for this painting, doing a monochrome value painting and then slowly building up colours on top. It is one of my better attempts at landscape with acrylics, so I suppose I should be patient more often!
