Painting: Oil on Canvas.
The brightly illuminated backdrop from the setting sun made the waters glow, while casting the overhanging leaves into deep, silhouetted tones. This moment was so fleeting that I do admit that most of this work was done using photos instead of the outdoor, "plein air" approach that I prefer. It was hard enough to capture with a camera, but only paint and brush work can begin to bring the sense of energy in the hundreds of sparkling reflections and moving colors in this river at the end of a glorious day. A soundtrack needs to be playing to get it right.
