Title: The Russian River Near Monte Rio (CA)
Medium: Oil on Strathmore “Bristol” 100 lb. paper
Size: 9 x 12 in/22.9 x 30.5 cm
Notes: During the summer months as the Russian Rivers snakes its way towards the Jenner and the Pacific Ocean, the canopy of trees turns the river various shades of green, blue, even purple. Near the small berg of Monte Rio the river reflects more green than the other colors due to the places where the tree line comes comes down to the river’s banks.
This oil on paper attempts to capture that magic.
