Houseboat Holiday

My family and I went to Koocanusa Lake (Sunshine Houseboats) last week, in southeast B. C.  Nobody seems to have heard of it, which is good because the beaches are deserted.  Here is my watercolour set-up where we stopped one day.

The weather was wonderful and the terrain commanding.

Strange Mark

The other day after working on a new painting, I realized I had made an unusual mark in an area that was supposed to represent some foliage of a tree.   It was not what I was trying to do, but I found it interesting.  It is a soft, sort of round area, of a delicate blue-green colour.

I don't think I will be able to leave it like it is, but I woke up thinking about it the next morning.
