Today I met up with my painting buddy, Cindy, so I suggested we go to this spot about 1/2 way between our houses. I'm back fully into nature with no man made features, and it's great!, but I'm missing bridges.....
#299 The White Creek
9 x 12
It would stay pretty overcast with gusts of wind and an occasional break in the cloud cover, but never rained, and the colors were rich.
I had a better time with the green today, but it was more limited than yesterday, with the water and sky there was less than 1/3rd green.
I had to scrape off the sand bar because I needed the hue just right. The value between it and the water was very close, and color/ temperature was crucial, so it took a few tries.
There was a lot of delicacy within each area, but if those areas aren't the right general value, your lost.
Some how the details fell into place, the water changed just a bit, (for the better) and I was able to gather the darks and the lights.
This is where I ended up, just over 2 hours paint time,
Here is my scene.
