Today I went with the Juneau Plein Rein painters up Basin Road to a Gold Creek gravelbar.
This spot is where lots of tourists go to pan for gold.
The foot bridge in the picture leads over to the mining museum.
The day began with low clouds threatening rain, but as the morning progressed, the clouds thinned and blue sky appeared! I painted for about two hours on this little 6x6 panel. Forgot my palette knife so I was forced to use brushes!
We saw a Harlequin female duck with her ducklings in the fast flowing stream. They literally ran across the swift current to cross the river, seeming fearless!

(I will get back to my Charleston painting in a bit.)
Thanks for looking and making a comment!
