Today I went back to one of my favorite places with the intention of getting glow from temperature mapping and layering. I began with a watercolor underpainting in which I determined a loose warm and cool large sections.
One interesting story, completely off subject. I have been out in the woods and at the river since I was a young child, but I have never seen what I saw today. Floating downstream was a shape...well sort of a shape. It kept changing shape- an appendage here and then it was in a new place. I couldn't figure out what it was. Because of that I could not dismiss it, I needed to know. As the shape got closer I could finally see. Wow! It was two snapping turtles holding tight to each other, making babies! Finally they arrived at the white water. I thought that was the end....but no! They just held tighter and weathered the rapids. They continued the deed and kept floating.
Hmmmmm. Happy Mother's Day!
Nature is amazing!
