"One fair [painting] is a sunset. I saw it on my way home from Severn Falls, no material to draw or paint it, and too tired anyway. So I remembered it, and made a pencil drawing later from the same place with a similar sunset."

- David Milne to James Clarke, August 28, 1935

In 1933, David Milne left Palgrave and was searching for a new painting place. Traveling by canoe through the Trent Canal-Severn River system, he ultimately discovered Six Mile Lake, at the southern end of Georgian Bay. It was isolated, with no railway or highway connections, and it was a seven-mile trip to civilized contact - but this isolation was pleasing to Milne. He built a cabin on a granite promontory overlooking the lake, and he stayed there until 1939, painting striking wilderness subjects such as Channel Sunset.
