This is the second painting inspired from our kayak adventure. I started it when

I did Painted Turtles, however it had been sitting unfinished on the desk for the past couple of weeks. Tonight, I finally decided to slap it back on the easel and get working.

Kayak is loosely based on an instagram shot I took with my iPhone while out in the middle of Duck Lake. I took the photo with the intention of creating a similar painting. I wanted to paint that first person perspective in the middle of a large body of water. Changing the sky to bring more colour into the piece, I usually enjoy working in gritty, earthy colours and washes, but felt like doing something a little more vibrant tonight with a primary palette.
