Creek Bed In Winter, Oil on canvas panel, 5"x7"
This creek bed is close to our home. It is dry most of the time except for rainy parts of winter and spring.
I wanted the energy of the branches to be the focus of this little work. There was a lot of brush in the creek bed of course, but I wanted to reduce the elements to what I needed. The houses are also higher than they are in real life. The hill is not that steep, but again I wanted to accentuate the “V” effect for design purposes.
