After the Storm, Santa Fe.

After the Storm

6x8in oil on canvas 100.

The heavy rain had me running for cover. After it had finished, the arroyo filled so full it looked like a regular stream. As I knew the water would sink into the ground pretty quickly, I took yesterday's painting and wiped out the adobe house and fence and painted the new view.
The hills were actually behind the adobe from my painting yesterday, so I did not need to change the mountains. I used the palette knife for speed and working so fast, this small, does not allow for careful strokes. Even so, I still like the end result.
