#14 Kristin, Beaver Pond at Twilight

5 x 6", watercolor
(c) 2011, klink

While doing landscapes, it often helps me to paint on a small scale, so then I have to simplify and not become too engrossed in detail. This is just a simple little landscape, trying to capture that time of night which lasts so long in the Alaskan summer...

Love the sense of solitude and quiet you've captured in this image. Working small does help to eliminate a lot of the extraneous detail!

This is lovely! I like the way that the shadows and breaks in the snow have been captured.

Very nice, Kristin- I really like the sky colors and the surface of the pond looks really glassy and calm.

lovely, Kristin....I can feel night settling in...and the transition from day creature sounds to night creature sounds...
