The Historic Odessa Mill Damn 10" x 12" O/P
After some indecision about painting the old mill and a short time of 'scouting around', I settled upon the view of the historic damn. I think that I was drawn to the scene by the wild flowers and the sound of the water falling over the old damn logs. A beautiful spot to paint !
I used a fairly limited palette for this painting. Important to me was the fact that I did not use or put alizarin on my palette, for the first time.
The above photo is a view of the scene that I chose to paint.
This is a view of the mill that I decided not to paint. Maybe another time.
