Deer River Falls
I had fun painting this one. I did a plein air painting on site. That was funny for as I was painting someone came up from behind and shouted loudly. It startled me so much that my picture flew in the air and landed on the ground. Here it is...the finished version.


  1. Hi Winston, finally got to your blog; nice chatting and can finally witness your interest in running water. This looks great, very fresh. On the spot, too. Look forward to more posts!

  2. Thanks so much to two of my favourite Canadian watercolourists. I have a long journey ahead of me but it has been fun so far. With kind wishes from your greatest fan.
