Rocks and Wild Waters 

Oil on canvas

I painted this in the wildest section of the Doubrava River.
The riverbed is cut deep between moss-covered rocks. Sunbeams can only reach the bottom for half an hour in the midday so ti’s always cool and damp.
Setting up a tripod in such spot wasn’t easy. One foot stood in the water, the other on a slippery rock, and the third in the mud. I had to be careful to not to fall into the water while I was stepping back from the painting.
I chose slightly bigger larger format than for this plein air piece. I liked it because I could swing the brush a little bit more and I think it’s apparent.
