Low Water

Hello started this on location pastel on Uart paper 30x24 inches


  1. Pebbles and stones by the water can be very tricky to paint without becoming frustrating, but you did a great job here. The play of light off the distance grass and stones contrasts well wtih the shadows foreground.

  2. WOW! this is an amazing painting. The colors are wonderful and the reflections in the water is beautiful!!!

  3. Your work is always wonderful----colors are so right, and the comp's simple yet powerful. thanks!
