Water Under the Bridge


Oh my - what a treat!  After hiking the trail around this part of the park, I started this large painting rather late - shortly after 4:00.  It had been raining all day, so I headed here when there was only a drizzle left.  I started blocking in fast to get that surface covered, just in case the rain returned. As long as I've got oil paint on that surface, I can continue in the rain.  Any unpainted parts will repel the paint if wet.  Both yesterday and today, I had to cover the panel fast, and it helped me get the whole thing painted quickly.  I think I've stumbled onto a key to painting large - both days were much easier than the first attempt. I did lose the light before quite finished, so I made a couple adjustments at the car.  I just love painting to the sound of rushing water!  Painting number 2851 in 2851 days.
