Plein air from this morning

Hello --I am taking advantage of the beautiful weather while it lasts here in the Midwest. I found this scene of a swollen creek in a wooded area. Pastel on Uart paper ( over watercolor wash) I am finding the watercolor underpainting lends itself to a loose style with less detail and more mood.

  1. Tom, I really like this one. Great background and water. Nice to get out and paint.
