Autumn Reflections at Children's Lake (Boiling Springs, PA)

Autumn Reflections at Children’s Lake, Boiling Springs

Pennsylvania, Watercolor on Yupo

I’ve painted Children’s Lake in the little town of Boiling Springs, PA a number of times, and it’s lovely no matter the season. It was an unusually warm November day of about seventy degrees when I sat with some painter friends enjoying some plein air painting. Yupo is a good medium for me to use when I want to paint fast. It doesn’t allow me to get overly detailed, and that looseness is what I was looking for in this painting.
