Puddle in the Park

Jessica and I went to Rodeo after the rain. This was a good opportunity to paint puddles and also work on those "naked trees" as Jessica calls them. It took me a while to figure out the obvious, that a puddle is simply a small lake and an edge is just a bank. That took away the that fear where I freeze up and paint small tight details. Still do that on those trees.

  1. Interesting insight on the puddle. It seems to have worked well. I have a feeling this will be a good year for standing water.

  2. So soft and atmospheric -- almost resembles a watercolor. The water is great, and so are the trees, but I sure can relate to your "freeze and paint tight details" feeling!
