Krause Springs Creepers

A few years ago I was plein air painting in this magical spot of Texas called Krause Springs.

I found this half painted painting and decided to finish it today so I could post it.

It goes with the water theme I am aiming for with future paintings so what the heck.

In fact I began another large acrylic today as well  in keeping with the pastel I painted yesterday, might finish that tomorrow.

But in the meantime I wanted to post this one.

 I recall I did paint a more natural colored version of this area too, it sold some time ago and was the one I did at the springs en plein air..but...

I have a problem with natural greens, in plein air to me, they appear boring, flat. So I tweaked the colors a lot in Photoshop for this painting above and painted my own romantic version of this scene.

It is an acrylic on 24 x 30"  on 3/4" gallery wrap canvas.
plus S/H.
