Shallow Creek

Being late in the year the sun was low by the time class began. Looking for something simple to paint quickly we chose the creek bed. The orange glow of fallen leaves reflected in the pools or is it the orange of the setting sun? Blue slate of the creekbed compliment the orange ember. My pallet consisted of sienna, orange, red and cobalt blue, plus white.

Oil painting 9" x 12" $350

This is a very unusual and colourful painting Nancy, and I like it very much. All the best Nancy.
