I have been working on this Gouache watercolor for several days. I have thought about it for a while and working off several photos of an island on the North Platte River south of Saratoga, Wyoming near the Colorado border which is very near the headwaters of the North Platte. This painting is 18"x28" image size. After starting I decided to also put in a Buck Deer. He will be showing up very soon.

Worked on this painting for a while yesterday. As usual am working top to bottom and from left to right so as not to get my hand into my oils. So why do I have paint on the underside of my hand? Well. I try to stay out of it. Will hit it again today though I am also working on a Gouache watercolor that I am also posting.
Still doing some planning out in my head on the Deer painting. Will post some drwings later.
