Lake Hartwell Island Hopping

This was painted from a photo taken last summer.  Far too often, we start out fishing and end up swimming off some island.  This is one of our favorite camping islands.  I started this painting on a canvas that I had already applied a dark ground to.  I enjoyed the painting process a lot more, because it forced me to use thick paint and to jump into the colors and contrast quicker.  I prepared another canvas today so that I can try the technique again tomorrow.
