This painting is from a beautiful day painting at Kingston Mills. Kingston Mills is the first lock in a series of locks on the Rideau River. The Rideau River flows between the city of Kingston at the east end of Lake Ontario and Canada's capital city of Ottawa.
This piece is painted on a Masonite panel, prepared with three coats of gesso and a final coat of orange-red acrylic paint.
My palette for this painting was Ultramarine Blue, Cadmium Yellow M., Alizarin and White. During the course of painting, I added Yellow-Green, as well as some Cerulean Blue when it came to painting the sky.
The above photograph is a view of the scene that I painted at Kingston Mills.
