Soft Song of the River

Here is another painting from this summer.
I am still working on catching up with my blog posts....

"Soft Song of the River"
9 x 12 - Oil on panel

Gin Lammert and I went to the Bentonsport Rose Garden
on a gentle June morning to paint for a couple of hours.

The sky was overcast and
we had just missed a little early morning river fog (darn it).
The sun never did break through to give us a little contrast.

Every time I look at this little painting I have the urge to go back
and paint in some stronger highlights and darks.
What do others do when all the values are in the middle of the scale?

Sometimes "improvements" are not for the best.....
