This painting was created by MacDonald in the winter of 1912 and is an example of his painting style before Tom Thomson began to paint in Algonquin Park. The style emulates impressionism, but is at the same time somewhat realistic. In the summer of 1912, Tom Thomson showed his first paintings to his group of artist friends, including MacDonald, and the impact of Thomson's creative style in his sketches would later work it's way into each of their own styles of painting from that moment on. Examples of this change on MacDonald's work can be seen in the murals,"Wild River" and "The Beaver Dam", which were painted after seeing Tom's Algonquin sketches.
