August 7, Miami-Whitewater

I headed out to Miami-Whitewater with the intention of painting the summer wildflowers in the meadows at the west entrance, but I was disappointed to find it not much different from the view I painted in June. There were some nice ironweed and black-eyed susan blooming at some places in the meadow, but not in the view I intended to paint. There was a lot of goldenrod  coming up, but it will be a few weeks until it is in full bloom.  Instead, I tried a view of Dry Fork, swollen from rains the day before. Looking downstream, I found a nice view with some good perspective. Late afternoon light was filtered through the trees, throwing shadows across the water.
