The plein air group painted at Delta Ponds last Friday. I felt like I was finally getting the idea of how to do distant bushes, trees etc. I love the water color but I couldn't seem to convey a mass of rushes. I'll work on that.
Delta Ponds is such an amazing place. So many views. This is one of 2 I managed to do last week. We have rain again and the garden is so overgrown and needing attention that I won't be able to paint for a while.
I'm hoping to try using a slightly larger canvas for a while. It didn't really take much longer. I really like this composition. I wish I could get all the values right. It seems like a good one to try redoing inside. I plan to go out to the ponds again today but then I have to be out of town for a week. Seems so sad to leave since we finally have a spell of sunny weather.
