"A Bend in the River"
Acrylic, 11" X 14"
With all the sketching and painting on the Jordan River Parkway I've done this is the first time I've painted the river itself. I spent over three hours on this painting which is the most I've ever spent on a plein air painting. That's one advantage to painting at the height of the day, the shadows don't change as when the sun is nearly directly above. Still, I couldn't have painted much longer, by the time I finished up the afternoon was turning into evening and the sun was getting lower and into the west.
