Lake Minnewanka
Date

Medium
watercolour on paper
Dimensions
29.5 x 34.9 cm
Description
Colours are predominantly green, grey, purple, brown, blue and white. The foreground, which is one-third of painting, is snow, ice on the shores of blue water, mid-to right are different sizes and colours of boulders. Pine trees with sparse and feathery needles rise from behind the boulders and reach up to the sky on viewer’s right hand side. The tree furthest to the right reaches the top of the painting. Trees on the shoreline stretch across the middle and rise uphill to almost the top of the painting on viewer’s left. A rocky ridge can be seen on the slope leading up to the left. The sky is white, grey, some blue and brown clouds, suggesting impending snow.
