Island and Cloud Shadow (oil on canvas 10 x 20 in.)
I began this painting shortly after the Wolf Lake trip, but had to set it aside for the autumn field work and paintings of the Frontenac Arch. I have allowed the soft violet underpainting which lies within the folds of the forest, forming an atmosphere for the trees, to emerge in the unfinished painting of the reflection of the nearer forest on the left. The influence of the violet underpainting also makes the pale blue sky more subtle, and supports the darker sky reflection which reaches forward toward our canoe, which was floating on cloud reflections.
