Yellow Creek watercolor landscape

Yellow Creek Revisited  :: plein air watercolor landscape

4 x 6″ Strathmore cold press watercolor paper

Painted en plein air from O’Neil Woods MetroPark, Akron, Ohio

Lynda comments:”I first painted this creek in the fall of 1980 as a college student. I was quite pleased with my work until my instructor said, ‘That’s nice, but I wouldn’t hang it on a wall.’

“I took great satisfaction in painting it once again, with more skill, in the summer of 2005. To keep myself humble, I managed to fall into the creek to avoid messing with a dangling spider…

“Fellow en plein air painters periodically remind me of my innate ability to immerse myself in my subject matter.”

This painting was published in the 2006 edition of “52 Weeks 52 Works” a desk calendar printed by AGC in Cleveland
