Last week we paddled the French River from end to end in seven days. They were, for me, long days. We were up with the sun and landed on our campsite with about two or less hours of sunlight left. This meant that there was little time for painting however I did manage a few mediocre paintings. I will post more about the paintings later but for now here are some quick sketches that I did in my journal along the way. All are 5" X 8" watercolour wash and ink in a Moleskine book.
This is our first day on Lake Nippissing. We ended up turning back because the waves were breaking over the bow of one of the canoes.
These last three were painted at our take out point at Chikanishing. I had a three hour wait while the other guys went to retrieve our vehicles.
