Skykomish River below Eagle Falls
(Click for a larger view.)
24" x 18" Oil on panel.
I really enjoy the RED of the bushes in Sky valley during the winter. I believe these are the same Scotch Brush that provide wonderful yellow color in spring. The section of river in this painting still holds some of the amazing green to teal color of the water from our mountain streams. This calmer part of the river is just below the tumult of Eagle Falls. You can see the rocky wall on the left here where the river is widening out.
