On Christmas Eve the boyfriend and I took a drive through nearby Awenda Provincial Park and stopped for a bit at a spot where, through the trees, you can see out over Georgian Bay.
(You can also climb down the cliff to the beach, but nah).

I goofed and ended up wasting a lot of paint, as I initially mixed a batch of Ultramarine Blue (Red Shade) with some titanium white for the sky and water, but as I was mixing I came to realize that this blue would be too greyish, and that I needed more of a greenish undertone to catch how blue the sky was that day, and switched to Phthalo blue (green). I'll have to remember that the green-shades are for skies, and the red-shades are for mixing greys and purples.
This is another one where I hand-lettered the sign, because I am impatient. A stencil would have probably come in handy. Oh well.
