Fairy Ring in the Water #1

Last month my family went fishing at Trojan pond near Rainier, Oregon. It is a beautiful spot and rarely ever crowded. As usual I brought my camera along in search of reference photos. I came across a lovely sight as I hiked around the pond with the non-fishers in our family. There was a grouping of water plants in a circular formation in the greenish water. They glowed white in the sunlight, as the water shimmered around them. they seemed to float in the reflections like some sort of mystic fairy ring in the water.

Last week I decided to do a painting of it entirely from memory. ( This is an exercise in the book Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain, by Betty Edwards). It is interesting how hard it is to remember details when painting from memory. Although remembering the general idea of an image is fairly simple, trying to remember the details clearly enough to paint them is nearly impossible. However, I really like how this turned out.

Impressionistic Water Reflections #1

Impressionistic Water Reflections #1

Even though this looks like something abstract, it is really a photograph of the forest reflected in a creek in Hudson-Parcher Park, Rainier, Oregon. I love how the green foliage resembles impressionist brush strokes in the water surrounded by glints of golden sunlight in the dark water.
