"Riverbed Jewels" ©

Taking the recent small 5" X 7" painting of Riverbed Jewels, I painted this piece in the studio. My goal was to capture the way the late afternoon light glazes the dry brush in lavender and rust.

Hi Laura,
I really like this painting with the yellow-golds and the reddish-orange. Very nice.

When I get your posts I often get them on my Google Reader which only gives me the one post not the whole blog.
Because I was interested in comparing your original study with this finished piece I pulled up the whole blog so I could look back and forth between them and see what you had done........... WOW.

I can see all the things you described that you would do but I have to tell you that seeing the painting alongside it makes it all the more meaningful.

Just gorgeous, Laura!!!!

Thanks Marian and Ruth, I did change a few things since blogging this one. Mainly I broke up the brush in the foreground, into an interesting pattern and added more color. Are they ever done? Just kidding, of course but my it's tempting to tweak.
