The weekend started out really cold and rainy, it was Emma's 14th birthday, so we went to the cabin and had a whole festival of fun, kids and parents alike. by Sunday afternoon the clouds were starting to lighten up and it seemed like the rain had actually stopped!
In the Adirondacks there are some huge vistas, if you can get to a clearing big enough to see it. There are so many intimate places also, this creek is one of them.
Monday just before noon, there was sun on the dock,
To begin with there were some nice contrasts, but I had this gnawing feeing my drawing and perspective weren't quite there, I's also tiny @ 5 x 7.
The sun was moving around, so I had to move my panel.
It's difficult to work this small, your eye wants to see more, it doesn't want to crop too small, but it's kinda slimy to get a hold of where you are.
Next up: Later on Monday, May, 27
This is the start, about 1/2 hr. or so.
I do like the feel and the texture overall, and I think the variety of greens is nice. but it falls short on shadow.
