Bucks Lake Bathers by guest artist Jim McVicker
I painted this watercolor a few years ago from a photograph I shot at Bucks Lake. Each June several friends would spend 5 days or so at Bear Basin Lookout. This was the trip from 2008. We would spend one afternoon with a hike up to Bucks Lake, often coming home with fish for dinner. I have painted several works on location each year, a couple of watercolors from this spot, so when I saw this photo I couldn't resist. The figures add so much to the scene. watercolor on paper 15x21
