Dawn Silhouette 3 - A Work in Progress

Today is a bright and beautiful, sunny day which is a pleasant change from the all rain we have been having.

Before I went down to have breakfast I did a quick painting as the sun came up of the same big pine from last night.

I will post this painting at a later date once it is completed.

Lorraine and I decided to go out touring around the countryside, with our first stop being at Cellar Falls where I took a lot of photographs of the twin falls and did a couple of very rough sketches.

Then on to Magnetawan to get photographs of the St. George the Martyr Anglican Church which was built in 1880 and is probably one of the most uniquely constructed buildings in the area. 

It was made famous when painted by A.J. Casson (one of the Group of Seven) and entitled "The Anglican Church at Magnetawan". This painting currently hangs in the National Art Gallery in Ottawa, Ontario. 

From there we took a wrong turn and ended up getting lost, although it was a beautiful scenic route and we did manage to make it back to the Koepnfli Inn in time for supper.

After the meal it was the custom to have a critique done on all the paintings that were completed over the course of the last three days.

Guess who had to do the critiquing? The work from the fourteen artists was incredible.

Thank you for coming to look at my artwork and I hope you will return often.
