Lake Moore study

Lake Moore study

This is a small study I did before working on some larger scale works of Lake Moore. I used gouache with quite a lot of water and like the way the colours bleed into one another. The lake was damp and the surface streaks appeared brown and yellowish. As the summer dries the lake out, this surface becomes white with salt. The white line is the mirage that makes the low hills on the opposite shore seem to hover and elongate.
