Lake Selmac, Or

This is a "painting-sketch" I did this weekend on a camping trip. The location was at Lake Selmac, Or. It is a Josephine County Park just out of Grants Pass on Highway 199. It a beautiful place to camp. This is the first time I've used Gouache is some time. I really like the medium. It's obvious that I will need to get is some more practice to manage the colors. I was pleased though with some of the brush work.

Hi Don! Very nice work! Definitely a joy to giving the goache paints as you've put great use to them!I felt peace with that lakeshore, keep up the great work!

You certainly are a "Don of all trades"! How lucky you were to be able to camp in such a beautiful place. Your painting sure captures a feeling of peace, relaxation and beauty of nature. Kathy
