A plein air study completed this spring on the Pretty River in Collingwood. I was tucked under a former train bridge (hence the shadow in the foreground) that brought Toronto, Simcoe and Lake Huron Union Railway trains to Collingwood way back in 1855. The line later became the Northern Railway of Canada, the Grand Trunk Railway of Canada and eventually a CN line. Passenger service ended in 1960 and now the rail bed is a hiking trail. See also the companion piece I painted in the same spot a month later. This painting is oil on panel and includes a floater frame.
