#25: "Peaceful Reflection", watercolor, 22" x 15"

Last evening The Wednesday Night Painters (I've been painting with this group for nearly 10 years!) met at the Wooden Boat Center. The late afternoon was warm, calm and peaceful.  The serene mood, beautiful shadows, and wonderful reflection of this beautiful rowboat captured my attention. It felt great standing in the sun and painting this scene. I just thought of another title, Rhapsody in Blue. In this painting my color palette is more restricted than usual. I kept wanting to add more color, but the painting wouldn't let me do it.  My plein air painting, Peaceful Reflection is the Ray for the Day.
