Christopher Creek

This is a little scene from our White Mountains in Arizona. This is a boulder strewn creek with a little trickle of water in between the large rocks. When we get a downpour it has a tendency to get busy and almost overflow the banks. This was an afternoon with a ton of ambient light. I wanted to capture the denseness of the surrounding forest and glow of the filtered light without painting every little detail. I think I will be forever haunted by Schmids handling of similar scenes. I tried to focus on edges and paint what matters and suggest the supporting cast. I learned alot and still am digesting the info.

Thanks for looking. Comments and Crit always welcome.
