"Long Valley Creek", pastel by Ralphie Hendrix

While driving back from Oakland, I stopped at a rest stop north of Willits. I wandered about looking at the light changing with the incoming clouds. I took this shot on the bridge crossing the creek. The sun light was getting weaker, the shadows lighter and the values much more close together.
Views like this really should be painted on-site instead of from a photograph. It is 8 X 8 matted and set in a black wood frame 12 X 12. To bid CLICK HERE
