Whispering Stream

Early light has a very special quality, the low light saturating the color in the landscape. Just like sunrise and sunset, the light is fleeting and colors must be marked quickly - to be filled in later.  I sketch quickly with paint, start marking the masses with their local color, and try to finish as quickly as possible.  Often, I am meeting edges and filling out masses after the landscape has already changed.  Another large one, this is 20x16, and I have the perfect frame for it!  Painting number 1671 in 1671 days.
