A lake less painted

I painted Lake Minnewanka, near Banff, a few weeks ago, and it occurred to me at the time that I’d only posted one other painting of this lake

Lake Minnewanka has been, over the years, a rather less popular location for artists, and it’s hard to say why. It’s in the front range of the Rockies and it’s not glacier-fed, so unlike most of the lakes and rivers in the area, it doesn't have the famous turquoise colouring, but the surrounding mountains are up to the local standards, so I decided to have another go at it.
