This particular view of the Ottawa River is near Deep River. When I set out to paint it was a very warm, humid day. In just a short time clouds had closed in and a storm came down the river valley from the north-west. It was spectacular watching the enormous clouds moving towards me and then feeling the cold down draft rushing in behind the still muggy air. The rain pelted down for about half an hour and then the skies cleared and the rest of the afternoon was clear and lovely.
