The Spring runoff looks so calm before it plunges into whitewater chaos going over the dam. Just under the glassy surface can be seen subtle movements of the current as it rushes to join the maelstrom. The roar was constant.
Buckets of rain began coming down half way through this piece and I huddled under some protective branches to finish it. Walking back to the car my solvent spilled in the backpack giving me a chemical burn. The discomfort, however, was well worth the result and not all plein air painting is so riddled with difficulty.
I like the orange buoys against the green background. They complement and compliment each other. "Hey, you are looking especially spiffy today!" "Like that color. Where did you get it?"
I'm starting another painting give-away soon. This time I will enter anyone who goes to the blog and puts in a comment. The more comments, the better your chance to win. Additional info to follow....
