Above the Canal - Plein Air Watercolor

I got out yesterday with my buddy Ruth and we painted on the bank above the canal which supplies Lake Oswego with its water. When faced with so much complexity at an actual site, one has to think about the essence of it. How in the world can I reduce this experience to a small piece of paper? This is always so much fun I vow to do it more often. It was a perfect late summer day.

You've discovered the essence of poetry. You just use paint.
