View Across the Canal


The black and white I started yesterday, but finished both today. The view is across the canal on the New Jersey side over the Delaware to the east coast of Pennsylvania. I am not really that fond of green, but it's everywhere. I have been looking at reproductions of Tom Thomson, the great Canadian outdoor painter. He seems to pick scenes where he can use red, despite the green, and he does it without barns. I have to study him further.

It doesn't take much red to put the green in its place, does it? Knowing where to put it helps. You sure do.

Great work, Bob - wonderful handling of the water and I love those dark trees and sense of space behind them.

Bob -- there is a freshness to this; almost "smell" the greenness of it all!

Sam, Brian, and Kelly, Thank you very much. It is nice to get one right every now and then.
