"Stormy Klamath River"
I've done a number of paintings of the Klamath River, all in summer, surrounded by full vegetation, and ready to jump in for a swim. One of the things I love about living in Mt. Shasta, California is that I get to see my favorite summer haunts at other times of year. In early April I took a drive to the Klamath River on a stormy day. The River was full, rushing, and the last thing you would want was to jump in. Instead of bright and sunny, this one is cold and gray. I love the subtilty of the colors in this painting. Notice the soft contrasts of the blues, violets, and reds in the shading of the soft, green trees in the upper part. Contrast this with the golden greens, oranges, reds, and ochre tones of the middle greens forming the "V" in the River, and the blues and muted golden tones in the foreground as the greenish blue water rushes through.
