This is a picture I took July 4th and have just gotten around to starting the painting. I cropped the picture so it fits on a 30 x 15 inch canvas.



I've only gotten a chance to do some under painting of the sky, water and some grass right now the colors are cobalt blue and sap green. I have started it with acrylics and will do more detailed areas in WS oils.

The power line will not be in it.

Judy

This could make for a really nice painting.. both the dock and the chairs bringing the eye into the painting centre. Interesting horizontal format, quite low and wide.
Off to a good start, Judy!

Thanks Sophie and Alan,
I made some progress yesterday. I keep getting side tracked. It must be the time of year. Once I get into it, I get lost in it and don't keep track of time, but getting started always seems to be a push. Maybe once I get all the white areas filled in it won't be a so bad. That isn't usually a problem for me but for some reason this time it is. judy

thanks Callie,

Wait till I get the pontoon boats in. They are so great for leisurely riding around the river...quiet and easy to move around on. I man I went out with a few years after my husband died had one and it was really nice.

Back to work. Judy

I may put some in in the distance but not up front. I'll probably add a few minimally descriptive sea gulls or Canada Geese in the distance since they are usually someplace to found.

Not much change in the rest just yet so I didn't bother posting it. Thnks for asking, though.
