Friday, I spent all day painting and this is all I have to show. I started one that I tried to save over, and over, and never got anything out of it that I was happy with. It had this early morning backlight to it that was gorgeous but I just couldn't get it luminous enough. The trouble areas were grassbeds. When light hits a grassbed it turns this wonderful bright green that I have had trouble with in the past. It's a very bright translucent green that I can't translate to the canvas. Next time I'll take my slingblade and cut the grassbeds out before I paint. There, problem solved.
This painting is on Swan Creek again, about 10 yrds. upstream from the previous post.
