View Full Version : Park Bench
06-10-2002, 08:24 PM
This afternoon's painting 3pm - 5pm at the park near my home. This is looking across the opposite side from which I usually paint. I've painted from the right of the park bench several times. Had to disturb all the ducks which usually sit under the small tree that I picked to stand under today...LOL! I kept hoping some of them would go over in front of the bench and nibble there...but of course, they're never where you want them!
Size a bit larger for me (12x16) oil, stretched canvas
Inviting and refreshing. Wish I could sit for awhile on that bench, and admire the beauty that you captured here. Yax

Ah...Carly...I do think this is my favorite of yours thus far!
I love the contrast of the colors in the water....really speaks to my sense of it. Colors are delightful....

I was afraid everyone would want to know why the water was "orange"! LOL When the sun shines just right across this (more of a pond than a lake), the water is a bright orange!

Beautiful painting. I like your color choices.
Take some bread with you next time, when you want to paint them in....throw a piece their way!

Gavin...that's not the problem. I don't feed the ducks but they all seem to like me anyway. They come and sit around the edge of the lake below my feet! I think its because most people steer away from "disturbing" me...and the ducks have figured out that I don't do much except stand there!
