Navarro River, Anderson Valley, Mendocino County

Reframing the view, three on an A4 sketchbook page

Heavenly! Time spent contemplating and painting the Navarro River in Anderson Valley, Mendocino County.

Inspiration and techniques from Virginia Hein's book 5-Minute Sketching Landscapes; reframing the view. Painted three views in quick succession.

Took Tom Hoffman's lead with the 1-1/2 inch Angular Wash brush. Happily, one cannot get overly fussy plying this brush. And it's larger than I'm used to, so results may vary. ~~Susan Ford

Though appearing green, the water was refreshing and not at all algae-ridden
