Jackson Bridge

When I walked down to the bank of this river, the wide sweeping view unfolded before me!  The drought in these parts has changed the landscape of the river beds, creating so much interest - and gravel bars to perch on that normally are underwater!  Intending to add watercolor, I started my sketch.  As I worked, I found the ink more expressive and no longer wanted to use the watercolor.  I think it is important to let the scene "talk" to me, and let the painting lead me where it wants to go.  In this way, I find the truest capture of this moment in this place.  Painting number 2821 in 2821 days.
