Morning Lake 2 - A Work in Progress

8F (-13C) and dropping steadily to -6F (-14C) with a lot of wind causing white out conditions and drifting snow; although around noon the sun came out and visibility was finally clear.

I pulled this painting out that I had started last month (see post on 08 Dec 13) and using French ultramarine blue and burnt sienna made a grey and painted in the distant shore.

I added a few rocks into the base of the island and making a darker mixture of the same two colours painted in the silhouettes of the trees.

I will post this piece at a later date once the painting has been completed.
