Autumn on the Herring River
There is a nip in the air. The greens are now golden. Birds seem to be more active. We went to our spot on Thursday to paint. The tide seemed to be running out and it was quiet but beautifully sunny on the river. What a day to paint. I captured the furthermost house with its boat in front and chose to ignore the few houses along the road on the left side of the river. That way, I have a focal point that is not compromised. The eye path has a reward at the end. I finished the entire painting on site and have not done any more to it. It was a great day of painting.
