"Sol Duc River Afternoon" plein air, landscape, oil painting by Robin Weiss

"Sul Duc River Afternoon"     9x12 oil on linen panel    $425
Earlier in the summer of 2014 I was invited by the events director of the Port Angeles Fine Art Center to join her and Jim Lamb for a few days, scouting painting locations in preparation for Paint the Peninsula. Jim was to be the awards juror and was also teaching a workshop after the event. I had already been on a few painting trips with him and we were both like minded about what would be good spots to paint.  See Jim's work HERE

Painting the Sol Duc with Jim Lamb

One of the places that Anne Dalton took us was up the Hot Springs road to a spot called the Salmon Cascades on the Sol Duc river.

A location with a good view of the actual cascades didn't work out due to some young people having a lot of fun diving and swimming in the lower pools.  We did find a good spot above the cascades and took some extra time to do a quick painting.

You can see a painting of the cascades that I painted from a photo taken on location HERE

My paintings and experiences at Paint the Peninsula are recorded in earlier posts.

Oh Robin, so lovely. I am ready to throw my line into the pool at bottom. Some great trout to be had. sigh....love how you captured all the mystery of the forest in addition to the lively stream.
