Auction Starts Tomorrow -- "Cool Day at Clear Creek" 11" x 14" Oil Field Sketch

"Cool Day at Clear Creek" - Oil - 11" x 14"

"The viewing platform along Clear Creek in Shasta County, California, offers a fine view of the small canyon. There is dramatic lighting on the sides of the steep, rocky gorge, especially in the morning. Below, the creek is transparent and salmon spawn and lay eggs in the gravel streambed. A stunning subject!"  --- SFG."

Be sure to remove your sunglasses! As tempting as it is, you cannot mix accurate color through colored lenses of any sort unless you are doing just a value study. I had to re-paint much of this work because of the distortion.
