On my Easel, Part 2

shenandoah_in-progress3

After several more hours of work spread over a few days, the Shenandoah River is flowing lazily through my painting. I masked the rocks and highlights on the water with liquid frisket and then added color on the river. When that was dry, I added texture on the water where the ‘riffles’ are. I had to look that up to make sure it is a real word (it is!), but my husband has taught me that fish like to feed in those areas because the insects will get churned in and disoriented. He commented that in the warm autumn sun, there would definitely be a hatch coming off right now.

The first “On my easel” featuring this painting is here: https://khertzlerart.wordpress.com/2015/12/09/on-my-easel/
