Watering Hole

Apologies for the photo. Hiked in to Ramona Grasslands reserve with a pochade and tripod this morning, early. There is a little pond dammed up at the low end of a meadow where the cattle drink. I came out with this 11 X 14 oil on gessoed panel. C&C welcome.

Re: Watering Hole

Nice color combination. Everything works together to present a bright winter day. Coots or Mud Hens are one of my favorite birds. Gary

Re: Watering Hole

Thanks for looking, Gary. Glad to hear the coot reads as such. They have the weirdest metallic green feet!

Re: Watering Hole

Yesterday, I made a time-lapse video demo while I painted this painting. I set it to music (my wife on piano and backup singing, her brother on drums and vocals) and posted it on YouTube. You can see and hear it here. Hope you enjoy it!

Thumbs up Re: Watering Hole

Really nice. Looks like a limited palette and it works well for cool winter days. I'm drawn to the bare trees on the left, theyre lovely !

Re: Watering Hole

Thanks Shubert. While the posted image doesn't show very well, there is some judicious use of sgraffito there and elsewhere in the painting. I find it helps to represent sticks, twigs and grasses--providing texture and contrast. Sometimes I'll scratch, then blur a bit, which helps to keep the sgraffito unobtrusive. I think it helped in this case to define those trees.

Re: Watering Hole

I watched the utube video of you painting, oh my goodness that was so good. Love this little painting. You do great work and encouraged me to go outside more often. Yea!
