Back to Normandy

Went back to Normandy last week to paint the Duck River again. Painted the tail waters at the dam and at a bridge with a public access area. I have painted the tail waters there probably 5 or 6 times now and you would think that after you paint the same view a couple of times it would get repetitious and easier and a bit predictable. Well for me it doesn't. Everytime I paint it it is a struggle and I never know if it will turn out to be a keeper. If you look a few blogs back you will see the same view but two very different looking paintings. Also, the spring weather has really changed the look of things from the last painting to this one. I have also noticed the number of fishermen has increased in direct relation to the weather.
