Creek At Descanso

This is painted from an old photo I took during a trip to Descanso Gardens.  It's one of my favorite places in So Cal.  I thought this was finished but after seeing it in this photo, there are several things I can see that I need to work a bit more.   That's the nice thing about oils; areas can be covered over many times until I feel it's good.  That's a very freeing experience after working with the constraints of watercolor for so many years.

  1. De très jolies nuances de couleurs... J'aime le mouvement dans cette peinture.
    Il est vrai que parfois lorsqu'on observe son travail sur photo on s'aperçoit qu'on pourrait améliorer ou ajouter de petites choses...
    J'ai hâte de voir quoi dans votre oeuvre !

    Gros bisous.

  2. Nancy, I think this is stunning! I love trees and water and you've got my two favorite nature things in once gorgeous piece. Love seeing the tree reflections in the water too. Colors are fabulous!

  3. Merci Marinealison.

    Thank you Sheri. Trees and water are two of my favorite things in nature also.

  4. You captured a beautiful image of trees hanging over the water and I can almost hear the sound of the painted it so well.
