Autumn River

"Autumn River" (Watercolor)  ©  C. Eastwood, 2011
When my teacher saw what I was attempting to paint, she was actually quite polite about the way she questioned my sanity.  I believe it was something like, "Oh my.  Really?"  The subtext being -- "Are you nuts?"  But I have to say I learned quite a lot during this exercise.  I wanted to learn about painting moving water -- never dreaming that long before I got to the painting of it, I would be running the top half of my work under a faucet and scrubbing it with a sponge to lighten things up and start over.  So I guess you could say it's a moving water exercise in every sense of the word!
