underpainting at Henricus

I love swamps.

I love swamps.


The first day I went to Henricus to work on this painting, I was looking at 9 yards of mud. I planned to paint the mud, but as I was working on the sky, I saw the water suddenly covered the mud. I thought, ok, this is tidal. I was at the James River below the fall line, about 1/2 hour drive down 95 close to Chester
