Lake Solano Campground
Wonderful weather and view of Lake Solano in Winters, CA. An opportunity to mix a few varied greens and put a canoe in the Lake. The birds, especially, the peacocks gathered around as we painted. I think the peacocks are be used to campers and being fed. The hills are dried out now with the hot summer days.
I tried to paint the bridge in a recognizable likeness, but did not want it dominant. The canoe is the focal point. I used the bridge cast shadow and supports to direct the attention to it.
