Hay Lake Adirondacks, watercolour, 2012
Two Adirondack (or some would argue "Muskoka") chairs overlooking the lake make such an iconic cottage scene denoting the calm relaxation of being on vacation. This is the deck at Hay Lake Lodge near the east gate of Algonquin Park. It is a September scene so the trees are red, medium yellow, yellow ochre, orange, and burnt sienna (rust colour) with a few splashes of green. The reflections look good a bit darker.
On the text page, surrounding Robert Service's carefree poem, there are pale lilac coloured asters. They thrive in the roadside ditches and amaze me with their soft pastel contrast to the otherwise strong fall colours.
