Conodoquinet Rapids by Julie Riker
Saturday was a great day for a plein air painting session. I went to Willow Mill Park and decided to focus in on this small section of rapids. I wanted to try to keep enough realistic detail in the painting for the viewer to understand what it was, but border slightly on something more expressive. I found myself getting into the markings and movements of my brush strokes as I followed the path of the water.
