river in spring

I haven't been out to capture the morning in watercolors for a few weeks
... and I have missed so much!

today's is from my favorite vantage point
a bend in the river where the water is very expansive
almost like a lake

I painted in the background washes roughly
and then came home to add in the trees and ridge
it's not much like reality - but hey - it's my impression of it today
clear and reflective

Wonderful painting AND I love your hanger as well. So clever you are!

That's what is great about art, especially watercolor. It can just be an illusion of what you see. I love how you did it. I'm thinking of going out in the's supposed to be in the 60's, so much cooler for us. Love your hanger for your little painting.

I think I like your vision better than the actual view. You have more dreaming going on! xox

Sorry I missed the wine bottles post. I love those types of bottles and the slumping is fun if you have the right equipment. I'm so glad they turned out well for you.

Your water scene is truly beautiful. It was nice to see a photo as well as the painting. You paint SO well.
