On the Marsh

A long day and night yesterday and not much painting time ...

This simple landscape was created wet in wet with Winsor Yellow and Paynes Grey - a combination that seemed to create its own mood and yet matches the weather this morning. I awoke to the tail end of a rain-filled night - though the total rainfall was less than 1/4" ... far less than we need to even put a dent in the drought conditions and dry soil.

The see-saw of temperature fluctuations continues - today we're already in the 60s and by Friday we should be in the 80s! Each day brings more flowers to bloom - but they'd shine a bit brighter if only they had more moisture to nourish them ...

Stay well ...

Amazing foggy drama, the simple work can often be the Best. Gorgeous Lin.

Ah yes, Moody was exactly my first thought Teri!! Lin, it's gorgeous. The color combo and the thin white trees -- ooh what a wonderful piece. You've captured mood and mist perfectly in this serene and simple portrayal. BRAVO!
Big hugs,
Lorraine

Ooh, I forgot to mention the glorious reflections and those thin dark trees -- both along the water and the reflections. WOW
