Barron Canyon - A Work in Progress

I am gradually working on paintings for the show at the Visitors' Centre in Algonquin Park later this year. This one is a painting of a section of the Barron Canyon.

There are two ways to enjoy the Barron Canyon. If you enjoy hiking you can take the approximately 1 mile (1.5 km) loop called the Barron Canyon Trail that takes you along the top of the north rim of the breath taking, 328 foot (100m) high Barron Canyon before returning to the parking lot.

The other way is by canoe, which can be accessed from either the Bingham Lake Parking Lot and/or the Barron River Parking Lot. Viewing from the water and looking up the Barron Canyon walls takes on a whole new perspective.

Regardless whether one is standing and looking over the unfenced cliff's edge downward or those in canoes looking up, people will appear tiny against the magnificence of the Barron Canyon walls.

Once I have completed more work on this painting I will post it at a later date.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog and look at the artwork. I hope you will return often.
