Twilight Fire on Lake Durant


Painting the lake in twilight - I was at the Adirondack Museum last month and was in awe of an oil painting of an Adirondack lake done around 1840.  Can't remember the artist's name, but have wanted to paint the setting sun on the lake ever since.  I've put in a lone camper sitting by the fire, with his boat pulled onto the sandy beach.  Lake Durant has a couple of lovely sandy beaches, which is unusual.
