I know it is a little hard to see in a photograph, on a computer screen, but I was working on "glint". At least that is what I had wanted to work on when I started. It ended up being the very last thing I thought about, which is good, I think! This was from a session of plein air painting on the river near Crimora, VA. It was cool, breezy and sunny, so the water was changing constantly. I got everything down in about 45 minutes, then added a little glint. I had been thinking about how artists capture that mystical quality of light, glint on water, and wanted to try. I think it got it pretty well. Just a small little oil, on gessoed watercolor paper. I did another painting that day, but I will put that one up tomorrow. Cheers!
