Here’s a painting I did for an online class I’m taking with Tom Anderson — a fantastic landscape painter in the tradition of Bill Alexander. Tom painted this composition at Silver Falls, Oregon while finishing his certification. He uses it in his class to teach students how to create motion: the cascading waterfall, the two lovebirds paying in the mist. I added my own touches, of course, and set the painting in autumn. I have to admit that I’m rather proud of this one.
