Greensboro Bicentennial Garden Creek

Last week during a pause at my conference, I had the opportunity to visit the Greensboro, NC BiCentennial Park.

As part of Kate's watercolor class "Creating Textures in Watercolor" (http://cathyjohnson.info),' I sketched this water and woodland scene from a photo I took while visiting this beautiful park.

That's funny -- I JUST tried to paint from one of the photographs you had posted of the same stream -- where there was a little waterfall -- and botched it up. You've done a much better job :)

And excellent texture there IS in this, Lin! Well done. Looks like a beautiful place.

Oh my goodness -- it's lovely -- and so many different textures -- all so well done. I just love the whole scene -- the feelings it evokes and just drinking in the details!
Wonderful!
Hugs,
Lorraine

Just beautiful! Excellent job on those rocks, good highlights and shadows! The bits of white in the water is very effective.

Gosh Lin, you are continuing apace! I love the edge where the water and the bank meet, so realistic!
