Along the South Yuba river there are some quaint restaurants that over look the scenery. The day I painted this I walked around the buildings after lunch and from a vantage point on a bridge I took pictures of the river and the surrounding banks. In my studio I selected two that I especially liked and worked from these. A very bright sunny warm day with the water flowing under the bridge worked magic for me. I particularly enjoyed the light reflecting off the rocks in the water.
