This is a plein air painting I did a couple weeks ago in Pilcher Park. It was a cloudy day, and therefore dark under the canopy. There has been little rain for weeks, so this part of the creek bed was dry save for a few puddles. Behind the limestone wall, there is a meadow of very tall grasses that were illuminated in contrast to the darker, forested area.
