I wasn't sure what exactly I wanted today, it wasn't this, but I had spent a lot of time to get to this spot, I just had to paint it. I had wanted some contrasts, I was hoping for some open water and strong shadows, I found a lot of grey, but I changed my tune and made it work.
The "Money Shot"
#489 Battenkill @ Clarks Mill.
I've been around this bridge a number of times, and without foliage, makes it possible.
Sky and middle tones (they're all middle tones)
There were a few dark tones.
Here is where I stopped.
This is where I "trudged in" mine were the only foot prints, do "normal" people do this?
I appreciate having this place and others to go paint.
My pallet, I was initially daunted by the lack of contrasts, but by embracing the subtle differences in greys, I think it worked out OK.
