....I spent a lovely few hours around this small pond with a couple of painter friends. They were painting over on the other side and the sound of their voices talking softly came across the water mingling with the quacking of ducks and the splash of Canada Geese. It was mesmerizing to hear that and be able to look at the push and pull of the lily pads on top of the moving reflection of the trees.
This is an oil painting done on birch panel and needed very little in the way of retouching when I got home. Just some picking out the fluff of the poplar cotton and seeds as they floated down on me and the paint. I didn't need to do much redesigning of the scene either. It's nice when things go easily.
Thanks for looking.
I'll be back.
