|Cypress Creek Morning 6 x 12|
The paintout session yesterday took place at one of the real gems in the Texas Hill Country. Krause Springs in Spicewood. Located just before the creek flows into Lake Travis, the spring fed swimming pool above the creek is a favorite for kids of all ages. This view is below the springs along the tree lined banks of the creek looking back upstream to the rock ledge with the rope swing. It was a great day to be there. There is nothing like diving into cold spring water after painting all morning. This is my first attempt at working with an arcylic underpainting and then using the water mixable oils to complete the piece. I worked on it about an hour and a half. & then started another painting. Some final touches were added last night back in the studio with breaks to check out the meteor shower.
