Lower Ottawa River sailing / En voilier sur la rivière des Outaouais


One of the rites of spring for me used to be taking out a laser or albacore sailboat on the Ottawa River in May. The water was still pretty cold and you didn't want to fall in by accident. This painting captures a scene on the river next to the old boathouse that the sailing club (ONEC) owns.
Watercolour, 11 x 15 inches.

Un de mes rites habituel au printemps était de sortir un volier laser ou albacore sur la rivière des Outaouais au mois de mai. L'eau était encore assez froide et personne n'aurait voulu tomber à l'eau. Cette peinture illustre une scène sur la rivière près du vieil édifice que le club de voile ONEC possède.
Aquarelle, 11 x 15 pouces.
