This small creek, which feeds into a larger creek, is a hidden gem in our canyon open space - a place for quiet contemplation. Although heavily forested, the light of the sun does shine through, magically lighting up the ferns and other vegetation. Especially after the first rains of fall, I love the brilliant emerald green shades of moss and ferns, contrasted against the golden colors of fallen leaves, and the deep reddish brown earth tones. To begin painting, I underpainted the background in pinks and mauve as a complement to all of the greens.
Though the original is in pastels, the fine art giclee reproduction is done on the highest quality satin finish canvas, and therefore looks very much like an oil painting, with deep and brilliant color. You have your choice of sizes.
