Rapids on Deer Creek

I went back to a spot I have painted before back in the Spring. It was a very hot day but painting next to fast water seems to keep one cool. I was not pleased with the colors. What appeared to be a warm tan in the sunshine became a cool greenish grey when I brought it indoors. But I think I saved it by waiting until it was dry and working into it later with thick applications of Sennilier oil pastels. I painted on a rigid panel so the pastels went on quite nicely. I then sprayed it lightly with an oil pastel fixitive that really brought out the colors. 8x101n oil paint and pastel on birchpanel SOLD
