Quiet Stream (SAA Paint)
I received my copy of SAA's PAINT the other day - and a challenge was offered to paint this scene using pastels. I used watercolor instead, and though I like the colors and hues, I think I could have made the stream wander a bit more especially on the right side -- it would have given this view more interest and more of a natural line. Still, I enjoyed the challege and finding ways to give the foreground variety and the water some depth.
It was a scorcher yesterday with a repeat performance today -- with temps of 101F ... even sitting indoors with the air conditioning on -- is so very draining. My staff returns from July 4th holiday and there will be much to catch up ....
Take care -- stay hydrated and be cool!
