My family has been going on the rivers more and more on the weekends. I was struck by how contrasting our water in North Central Florida can be. We have the crystal clear water coming from the springs and then the deep black tannin water resulting from the trees.
My work is experiencing some contrast also. I want to incorporate figures into my paintings and it is a bit of a shift in the way I have been working. I enjoy working from my drawings for my landscape paintings but I am not finding the same opportunities to draw figures. So I am using photographs at the moment.
