Take a very unique rock structure, Draping trees and a touch of water to create a very nice composition. I was traversing the Aux Sauble River when I came upon this great piece of rock along the river’s edge. It had detail and color. What was neat was the trees cascading down the side of this rock. In the back was a Birch tree that was flowering. The scales of the staminate aments are a yellow to orange color on the Birch tree. This adds contrast from the green leaves and offsets the color of the rock. It also helps when a beam of light illuminates the Birch tree for more effect. When you wait and watch good things can happen. I added some rock structure in the bottom right corner for added depth. Then the water gives a sense of location to the fact that this location is a river.
A selection of my works will be on display at the Sudbury Arts Council ArtsSPACE, South End Library, Sudbury, Ontario until the end of June. It will open sometime this week. I will be posting the open date. So until next time happy trails
