Cloudy Shuswap Day
Today's painting is painted from a photo I took from the public wharf in our new home town, Salmon Arm, BC. Now that we are settled in, I want to wander around and discover new painting opportunities and build up the photo references and look for some good painting spots. There is so much around here. Mountains, lakes, rivers, farms, old barns and fifteen minutes down the highway there are desert like scenes.
This is the fifth day in a row that I have posted a painting. I think this challenge thing is working. This is another 5 x 7 painting, painted with soft pastels and Pans. It is painted on dark grey Pastelmat. The clouds are one thing, but this is the first time I am happy with the water reflections. I am starting to put things together. Might be time to try a larger painting.
Thanks for looking.
