Early Morning -Kananaskis -plein air oil painting

"Early Morning -Kananaskis" -plein air oil painting, 12 x 9"
This is the third painting from our Kananaskis trip. It was wonderful to be in the mountains early in the morning before the Calgary tourists got there. This lake was just along the side of the road, I don't know what it is called. The water was extrememly calm and the reflections were wonderful. This painting was done on a board that had linen canvas adhered to it, a texture that I don't really like. I will have to try to find some smoother oil primed linen and try it again. Having said that, I like the plain boards best of all.
