Along the Courtois

 I LOVE painting from the edge of the Courtois Creek - my very first time to paint this beauty! The color of the rock shines through the very clear water, making that water tricky to paint!  I study those colors, and place them where I see them on my panel.  Careful observation reveals many colors that I could never see from a photograph of the same place.  It's just another reason I love working in plein air so much.  The landscape around me seeps into my painting as I paint, it's just another part of the magic of the field.  Painting number 4246 in 4246 days, and now showing at Gallery Zeke in Steelville!
