Last Monday was a fine day to paint plein air so I went to the Crystal Springs rhododendron garden.
Families of people and ducks were out enjoying the sunshine, sparkling waterfalls, blooming rhodies and other spring flowers. I set up first by a small waterfall, and kept my camera handy so was able to capture this boy bravely walking across the rocks, added later. At another location, there is a waterfall, stone walkway and wooden bridge, where I painted the pink rhododendrons reflecting in the lake. Walking on Rocks is 10" x 10" on stretched canvas, Pink Reflections is 9" x 12". Now that it's rainy, I can stay inside to paint from my photos. Next time, maybe mallard ducks!
