Once again, this is Bear Creek Park, next to our house. This is from a photo taken on an early morning walk several weeks ago. I've done several pieces from those references. The lighting, colors, mood (I've decided mood means the mood of the artist!) were all perfect that day.
The rusts/reds are a little stronger and blues a little darker in this photo than in the painting. I encounter this off and on and haven't quite figured out how to adjust it.
This bike path was built a few years ago. It meanders in a circuitous path around our side of the park. In the summer there is a community race every Wednesday evening, and several very large regional races on set weekends. We joke that we don't need to spend the money for a trip to Europe to see the Tour do France, that we can sit on our deck and watch bike races for free!
