This is a plein air sketch I did this summer, of a little inlet on Diablo lake.
My camp was just to the right in this beautiful forest
in the North Cascades Nat. Park, WA.
The lake is used by a lot of kayakers and canoeists.
It is a lovely opaque turquoise blue
caused by the grit brought down from the mts.
by the glacial runoff.
