Title:  Autumn Explosion - Percy Lake - 2002

I started this painting on Thanksgiving weekend 2001.  I sat about a kilometre away from this view - on a sandbank.  It was on that sandbank that I started drawing this scene with my ink nib.  I closed my watercolour pad and nearly forgot about this drawing.  Many months later, while working in my co-op gallery (the Corner Gallery, Newmarket), I was looking for some paper to draw on and re-discovered this piece.  I finished it from memory.  I had to draw the final 25% of it and I added very bright liquid acrylics and inks to the trees.  I wanted to create a feeling of warmth on a cool day.
