This was a small creek we crossed (on a small bridge) a few years ago while just driving through the area below Julian.  I have to confess, I added the barn for interest.

This is an 8 X 10, soft pastel  using primarily Unisons on Strathmore Pastel paper.

    The barn is the perfect “touch”. This is a wonderful piece. I love it! I see your skill level taking leaps and bounds ( not that they are needing growth!)! I think it’s all to do with the daily practice, which I believe works to sharpen skills.

    Thank you for your comments. I really enjoyed painting this one in particular because the photo was rather uninteresting, until one day it just jumped out at me as I was going through my photo stash looking for something with water in it. I’ve done several with water, but they were mostly products of my imagination.
