Summer vacation, lakes, boats and travel in Ontario, Canada


Summer vacation is for rest and fun. What do you need to do some watercolour painting outside? just some simple art tools.

Below is my favorite art bag with the travel brush, small watercolor paint box and album for sketching. A silk scarf is just for beauty…or you might use it as a mask.. it’s up to you:)

I painted the picture below in the late afternoon at #Toronto #downtown, on #Ontario lake before another #downpour this evening.  It was quiet in the park – that perfectly calm feeling before the storm – with only lightly swaying boats creaking in rhythm on the waves. 

The scent of ozone signaled stormy weather so I ran away just before the rain started pouring- but I captured the atmosphere – see there are actual rain drops in the painting? I love summer storms 🙂

#Ontario #Kawarta #lakes -This watercolour was done directly on the boat on a warm summer evening as my husband was fishing 1 foot away from me in the same boat 🙂

I aimed to catch the soft evening hues of the little cottage on the shore, and the surrounding green leaves and and the monochrome stones. The lake and two birches on the high lake shore reminded me of my motherland, the far-away #Belarus. 

Bon voyage! Until the next travel:) Stay healthy.
