Sammamish River Trail

This is a more recent painting, done on the Sammamish River trail, close to where I live. This was painted from a bridge over the river; the Sammamish river provides some natural scenery to a town that's rapidly building up density. The various hikers, runners, and cyclists were moving too fast for me to paint them!

If this painting looks somewhat different, it's because I'm experimenting with this Princeton Catalyst Blade. It's kind of a silicone "brush," though really it's more like a soft palette knife attached to a brush handle. The tool makes really interesting marks, and creates some nice texture on the painting surface.  I like it.

I'm happy to say that this painting is sold to Khushboo, my good friend and colleague.
