Snake River Blues
My acrylic painting class instructor told me that "only amateurs" have a huge signature in a complementary color. So, even though I am inarguably still an amateur, my signature is quite an unobtrusive down there in the corner.
In creating this painting, I learned a little bit more about how to make water looks like water. The sky was easier this time, too. Originally, there was a bush in the foreground, a big Chamisa bush. I hated it. I painted it out. If only life were that simple.
I painted this using Liquitex basics acrylics on an 18x24 canvas board. I painted it from a photograph that I took on a trip I made to Twin Falls Idaho. I found this very nice little spot in the state park at Shoshone Falls at dawn, where it was quiet and lovely. I think my next painting will be Shoshone Falls.
