Lazy River on a Hot Day
It's September here on Cape Cod. The weather is supposed to be cool and fall-like but it is hot. I think this is the warmest day of summer. I used my umbrella and with the breeze, it was very comfortable.
The color of the river is this dark greenish brown but the breeze brings out a very blue sparkle. I tried getting that with manganese blue and some dry brush strokes. It was somewhat successful.
