This painting is the one I was doing on my April 19 post called “En Plein Air.” It is of the bridge over Pleasant Run, a stream running through Indianapolis. Note the way that certain colors portray light and shadow. The sunlit part of the stream and rocks have a yellowish glow, while the shadowy part in the foreground has a blue or violet shade. Atmospheric perspective gives depth. The tree on the left appears to be in front of the bridge. The woods in the distance underneath are painted with less detail and color intensity. I wanted the viewer to be able to imagine walking down the stream.
