"Crossing the Stream" plein air

Yesterday, I painted this terribly garish plein air watercolor. Although Im not really happy with this painting, it is a siginifigant piece to me in that Ive never tried to capture a fleeting moment of human gesture in a plein air painting before. I think I was labelled a pervert a few times, by passing parents, while painting this...I suppose crouching over, hidden in a bush, moving my hand back and forth rapidly, overlooking children playing about in a park looks rather suspect. People seemed rather concerned.

Man, this is why I like watercolors!

Very strong painting, It feels as if the water is still moving..
Awesome piece!

My heart flutters when you post work like this. Really free and I can't say enough about the colors. The focus is spot on. Very awesome.

Haha, funny story...and a very nice painting. I keep telling myself I'll get back to the traditional ways too, but so far that's all :)

So yeah, I've seen all of the documentaries you listed, very good stuff. I've been moving away from the conspiratorial stuff lately (although I feel it's essential to see the dark and not ignore it) and been focusing on personal "spiritual" development. We can trade more info soon, but I'm preparing for the CTN Expo so I'll talk to you later man!
