Plein Air- Westlake River Bed

Westlake River Bed
watercolor on paper
  12 x 16
For Landscape Painting.  Limited Palette- Cadmium Red, Lemon Yellow, and Ultramarine Blue. I met up with a friend this morning and he showed me this beautiful spot.  Thank you Keenan.  
I love this.  The limited palette presented a few challenges but they were fun to overcome.  I love the colors.  As I was doing this I really concentrated in getting the values correct.  My watercolors tend to be too light so I am trying to work on getting darker values.
