Buena Vista Park’s recent “remodel” is complete! It’s great. They’ve added lots of new walkways, wooden bridgets and stairs.  A friend of mine (Eric W) is a regular volunteer at the park, and should take some credit (thank you, Eric!).  It’s a really beautiful place.

I painted this from a reference photo.  The sun was setting through the trees, and since the photo was over-exposed, it actually made good reference for a relatively “high key” painting.  If you’re a regular reader, you know I’ve been exploring this method. I’m finding it really helpful to fine tune my understanding of value and color temperature.
