Every summer, from 1942-45, Casson would visit this region of Algonquin Park. Many oil sketches of this area were produced showing all types of weather and terrain. In this painting, dark cumulus clouds glide across the sunny sky, while the greenish glow over one of the distant hills is a sure sign of a strong storm on the way.
