Burning Off The Mist

This watercolor was created on site, outdoors, utilizing the water of Lake Superior to wet the paper. I was observing, on a fall day, the mist on the beach when the sun started to burn it off, so I had to work quickly after soaking my full sheet in the cold water of the lake, applied color, then washed the painting off in the lake again and applied more color until the image materialized on the paper.
