Back in March I did a couple of quick interpretive sketches from photos. Just about then my arm and shoulder locked up. It's good now after a lot of PT. I'm back to this painting. Is't after a photo from about 5 years ago. I decided to paint the stuff that I liked in the photo but not the other crap. I rescaled the bridge brought it closer and simplified everything. I want a painting not a rendition of a photo. For that reason I going to show only the painting The reference is insignificant. This is a scene new us in the Ten Mile River Boy Scout Reservation with three important features. The stone arch bridge, the tumbling water in the foreground and the indication of the road marked by 2 yellow orange signs. Next step - find my base palette. Hint. It's gonna be semi neutral and neutral color.
