Plein Air Painting: The Search for the River

A friend and I set out with a small pack of art supplies to find the river….


Down dirt roads, through grassy fields, and mazes of tangled trees, we walked… I gathered sticks and leaves and admired the beauty of mother natures colors.  Finally we got closer, and you can smell the dampness, and feel the undergrowth cool and thicken…

We parted ways and sat along the banks of the Willamette River, lost in the colors and textures and sounds of the rushing water.  I did a little watercolor painting and enjoyed the feeling of the earth below my feet….below are a few of the treasures from the day…


Would love to hear your thoughts!
