As I drove further down the road, I came to the Elk River. This was where I had wanted to go when I started out early in the morning. The other day I mentioned how I like to take roads I have never been on before...the problem is, I can never remember how to get back to these locations the next time I am out painting. Well, I found the river, not the spot I was aiming for,but a good one none the less. This is the third sketch of the day. I think it worked out a little better than the others. Sometimes you have to be satisfied with the effort if not so much with the results.
