Tamarac, Spruce and Maple
48"x72" oil on canvas
If you want to see great fall colours I have to recommend taking the classic hwy 60 route through the south end of Algonquin Park. Along that route you will see the great lakes of Algonquin such as Opeongo, Canoe Lake, Smoke Lake, etc, etc, etc. Bring your camera and be ready to stop your car and go for a walk. You wont't regret it and you'll remember it for life.
I paint that location many times. You can see my work at www.robertmcaffee.com. Love to read your comments.
Many times each year I am asked about my painting process. How do I begin, how does the painting evolve, the steps, etc. I have decided to post a series of photos of the progress of one painting, " Hills of Algonquin" 30"x30" oil on canvas.
I hope this is helpful to those who wish to know.
The Hills of Algonquin reflects the first colours of the season as the threes transition from the brown dark of winter colours to the fresh buds of spring. You can see the new page called Paintings in progress on www.robertmcaffee.com

This sketch above became this finished painting below
The Pine Tree Painter.
How did I become known as the Pine Tree Painter? You could say I paint a lot of Pine Trees, that would be true. I paint a lot of other things too, but Pine Trees, Spruce Trees, Birch and others seem to be a continuous string in what i do. I just like the way they stand there like a custodian of the land. or a greeter to nature. So, I continue down the path with the Pine Tree Painter name on my head, It's ok.
