"Russell Millpond East"

"Russell Millpond East"
6"x6" oil on gessobord

I painted this yesterday evening, just as some dark clouds were rolling through. It was a great chance to paint reflections on the water, and I had to move quickly. The sun was out as I set up, and I noted the light and dark area at the back that I wanted to focus on. It went behind a cloud while I was getting things blocked in. And then, wow, the beautiful reflection showed up as the sun came out and the wind calmed down. What luck! I can see a few things to do better next time, but I thoroughly enjoyed painting this and I like it, nice and loose.

  2. Wow, you really nailed the light in this one Bobbi, perfectly simple! And congrats on your plan to do lots of sketching as well, you will progress in leaps and bounds with this approach.
