This post is for both of the paintings I put on today.

The purple of the background trees seemed so bright outside but here at home it looks brown. I'll try not to grey it so much next time. The shape of the water was actually to the right of the background scene so I was pretty happy that I was able to alter the composition. I got lost when it came to those foreground trees. Still not sure how I should have handled that.
Heading up to my dad's in a couple days so won't be able to paint for a while.

This scene was too complicated. I need to think about having only 3 or 4 masses. I wish I hadn't made a peak on that mountain to the right. I suppose the one on the leftt (Spencer's Butte) leads you out of the picture but that doesn't bother me right now. I pretty much like the grey of the distant trees and especially happy with the trees that are creating the main reflection. I've been working on how to paint trees that don't have leaves and I think that worked here.

I am loving my new Canon G12 camera. The colors seem very true.
I hope the fog lifts so I can paint outside this afternoon.
