February 25, 2008 Glow to the River

32x40, underpainting for The Potomac is Gorgeous, as of 2/25
approx, 6x7 pastel and watercolor on board
I am trying to make the river glow. What combinations of colors will do it? I thought I knew (ha!), but I am not completely satisfied with the under painting. So I decide to use today's vitamin to research more. Now I think more warm light is needed on the rocks and it doesn't seem to distract from the aerial perspective. I keep thinking of the wonderful paintings of Sanford Gifford. What do you think?
