Up the creek again . . .
I returned to the mouth of Calera Creek to paint the soft orange willows. It was another beautiful, warm day, with lots of interruptions from passers by. Painting started well, then deteriorated as the light waned and I worked the painting too long. Maybe the third time will be the charm. I plan to rework this version to capture the soft greens and oranges of spring in January(?), and redefine shapes that became too uniform and repetitive.
