Forest Stream in Whistler

acrylic  3 feet x 4 feet
I was excited to start this painting as soon as I saw it. As it wasn't my photo I had to wait to get permission form the photographer, Keith Levit. In the meantime I did some preliminary thumbnails as I new I would crop the photo....I don't like to 'copy' photos. I also gave it more of a background and added fall colors and lightened all the darks. I'm quite pleased at how it turned out. I want to thank Keith for letting  me use his photo as inspiration.See his work here

here is the original photo

Linda, I absolutely love your interpretation of the photo. You made it come alive, and become a most welcoming place.
