Barnes Creek at Lake Crescent


Below is an image of my most recent painting, completed on May 15, 2017. This is Barnes Creek, an inlet stream to Lake Crescent in Washington State.

The day was beautiful, sometime around early afternooon. I tried to capture the reflective light quality on the water.  Below is the process that got me to the final painting.

Antique Tractor

This old Ford was sitting in a field not far from the house. I parked, ran out and snapped a picture, then high-tailed it back to my car before the property owner came out.

Glad I got a shot of it, because I recently noticed that it has disappeared from where it had been resting. Hope it found a good new home.
