ACROSS THE RIVER

I went up a little north of the Salmon River Bridge this afternoon. There's been lots of action up that way this last week. The silvers are coming up as well as humpies and the fishermen are working on getting some of them.

I found a comfortable spot and spent longer than usual on this than on most of my little painting..... over 45 minutes. I always have trouble getting the bank on the river looking like what it is.... those clumps of vegetation always look kind of goofy. I'm not sure this reads right.... there's no water showing and the grass (on my side of the river) should be a darker value.
