View of the Pond

This painting is a view from the pond area in River Ranch, Lafayette, Louisiana and is also painted from Google Maps Street View.  I love being able to position myself in the spot I choose.  I can then look at the panoramic view and get a feel of the area...all from the convenience of my studio.

For this painting I toned my canvas, drew in the major shapes, then applied a very thin coat of local color with a palette knife.  I then added darks and lights, adding details as the painting progressed.
