Just for Fun!

It's a beautiful Easter Sunday...the weather was wonderful all day.  I didn't want to spend the whole day inside the Studio, so I did a quick study for about 1 1/2 hours in the late morning.  I found a 12" x 9" canvas panel already coated with black gesso.  I found a photo in my file taken on a very rainy February day along the Sacramento River.  I think it turned out fairly well.  It's was a nice way to spend a bit of the morning before heading out to the park and the river with Dixie Doodles.

  1. Une très jolie publication qui s'achève sur une belle promenade...
    Gros bisous

  2. Just love the low perspective of the shack and late yellow light. Very nice!

  3. Thanks, Kansas. I found this old barn under the old oak along the Sacramento River. I returned to photograph it several more times, and this is the second painting I've done of it. It's no longer there.
