This setting is a beautiful and peaceful gem in Salmon Arm, B.C. Canada. It has a boardwalk following along the marsh that is used by walkers. I have painted this scene numerous times as it brings back the sounds of the birds, musty smell of the ground and general peaceful feeling.
I took this painting to get a critique from Doug because even though the cross water shape was in the photo reference I took, I did not like how you eye couldn't be drawn into the painting. The finished painting is below. I am so much happier with it.
