8x10 pastel and watercolor on Uart paper
This morning was the Riverbend Plein Air event . It finally stopped raining after 3 days of rain. The river was full and muddy. The light was quiet. I began about 6:00 am and after much deliberation headed out to one of my favorite spots. It was actually so muddy beside the river that it was slippery.
I made tiny strokes of warm and cool colors sparkle together at the tip of the island, while large swaths of color stretch acroos the mass of trees and water. One area holds all the mystery. I liked it .....the judge didn't.....oh well. Next time.
This is the best photo I could get on the spot...sorry.
