In this map, Bracebridge and several surrounding towns and lakes can be discovered. Many of us have fond memories of cottages visited, lakes paddled and forests hiked in this beautiful part of the country.
My painting is composed of multiple layers of acrylic painted over a topographic map that I have affixed to a birch panel. The negative painting technique that I use allows me to reveal the subject on the unpainted portion of the map while also applying layers of colour to the background. I often remove portions of those layers to expose colours below. I enjoy combining the landscapes of an area with the map that represents it, evoking memories and creating a sense of connection to our familiar natural world.
