A color study for a larger painting. This is the Clackamas river. I flipped the photo, because too many of the riverbends in the series of paintings went the same way. I kind of like the way this balanced out.
As a plein air painter, I spend many contented hours sitting in some inspiring spot with the sights and sounds of the outdoors, capturing my impressions of light and color. Back in the studio, these works expand, recreating a particular place in a special moment.
