"ALONG THE PEDERNALES" – plein air and studio landscape painting by Texas modern impressionist Jimmy Longacre

Today's painting, entitled "ALONG THE PEDERNALES" is an 18"X14",  studio painting, oil on canvas panel, 

by Texas modern impressionist Jimmy Longacre. 

Painted from a photo taken one morning while out painting on the Pedernales River.  It was just an insignificant detail in the large reference photo, but it became a magnificent incident once I stopped to appreciate the way the light was playing on the rhythmic forms, and the way they came together.
