Painting at Springfield Lake

It is the calm before the storm and time to batten down the hatches. Sometimes if you are fast a painting will emerge. While a storm blew outside I worked looking out of the window and across Springfield Lake. I was using water colours on arches paper and really liked the fast feeling that came with the medium.

When I began working with acrylic paint on canvas I turned to the same view through the same window while skaters moved across the ice.
