These two are quick paintings done for a watercolor class I'm taking - the topic for this week's paintings was...water. So I picked two river scenes from my reference photos and here's the result. The first one is of the Deschutes River canyon in central OR, showing the view from the middle of the river as you approach this interestingly-situated cabin, at which point the river makes a big bend to the left. I'm jealous of whoever owns the cabin, one of only a very few on this stretch of river, and not accessible to the public except by floating. That painting is 10x13 inches in an Arches wirebound sketchbook with 140# CP paper. The second one is 9x12 on Arches 140# CP block paper, and is of the Teton River near Victor, Idaho. Each painting has about an hour or so in it.
