After getting a little side tracked, I got back to painting. Of course, with spring on its way there were lots of outdoor projects I also had to share with my day of painting. Hey, a couple of hours of painting was a real treat!
After filling out more foliage I decided to have a meandering river pass through the scene and also laid out a mountain range along skyline:
I start the water with a blue about the same shade as my sky. A clear sky is reflected in any water that is open to the sky. This is a starting point. Later I will add some green to show the actually water color.
