Meeker Slough

I tried another bird. The birds at Meeker Slough were so varied and beautiful that I couldn't help myself. After I had blocked out my painting all the birds had flown off. Suddenly a flash of white appeared before me and I threw some white paint down in the general shape of the big egret. The bird stayed for only a minute but I kept it in the painting. Meeker Slough is a great place to paint in. Many different views and choices and the light in the afternoon is stunning. Karen


  1. Rebeca Says: It is harder to see the quality of the brushstrokes that formed the water in this photo. I always admire the ease and economy with which you summarize features otherwise complex like the Albany hills behind, or the vegetation masses.
