Watercolor landscape painting American River in Sacramento California by Janet Tarjan Erl.

River Canopy

Medium: Watercolor, Image Size: 15″h x 19″w, Watercolor, 1985.

This watercolor was painted on location along the American River Parkway in Sacramento, California. This was part of a series of plein-air pieces I did along the Parkway. It took a week to complete because I could only paint for a few hours each day before the lighting had changed too much. This was a peaceful backwater setting and I was treated to the coming and going of many diverse wildlife species. This series of paintings started my interest in painting wildlife because I enjoyed watching them so much and wanted to paint my impressions of them.
