Dry Creek at Noon

I painted this one on my lunch break today. Grabbed a slice of cold pizza and headed off to Salem Park, about 3 miles outside of town. This creek was rolling with water about a week ago. Amazing how fast things change. Dry as a bone in this area of the creek now.

The limestone bottom always gives me fits when there's no water to hide it. Even though it was noon when I started this, the overhangning canopy of trees added a adappled effect I found pleasing. Hope it came across.

The dappled effect certainly does come across very well, as does the little pool of water left over at the top. Very nice.
