Down by the Riverside

"Down by the Riverside"
8"x6" oil on canvas panel
Day 16 of 30/30

This is a creek that runs through the little town of Leiper's Fork.  The photo was taken in early Spring so there was a lot of new spring growth on the grass and along the banks of the water.

This painting underwent quite a transformation.  I painted this scene using one photo that just did not work out.  I know you artists understand.  I then used another photo taken at the same scene but with a little different view.  This one worked out much better.  Sometimes we need to use our magic tricks to make a painting read better.
