I'm laying down the colours of the sky and river, having taken photos to paint the Basswood tree and its vines of Wild Grape, which join two trees like a necklace. The river bank is lined with Basswoods here, with Honeysuckle and some other shrub with small white flowers at their feet - and more Grape vine of course.
A Great Blue Heron flies westward over its reflection, and suddenly the tail of a huge Carp lifts lazily out of the water and wags back and forth as its owner grubs the bottom, as unconcerned as a dabbling duck.
