This 6"x8" is of the Mohawk River. After spending the morning with an artist friend in Little Falls I found this vista and new I had to give it a shot. It reminded me of the Hudson River Painters and their often grand and scenic pictures.
I've included a few pics of the process and one of the view that I had. It was a wonderful slightly overcast day for painting when I started but the sun did finally make a strong appearance and my light changed quite a bit before I was finished. It's all part of the adventure!
