Reeds and Paths

Last Monday, I painted at Batiquitos Lagoon, north of San Diego. Later that day, I posted a small sketch of two birdwatchers along the path.

I also painted a larger piece focusing on the patterns in the reeds. But my original composition was awkward. Because I painted what was in front of me, I ended up with two-thirds of the painting being about the reeds and one-third about the path. The parts did not harmonize. Today I replaced most of the trail with water and reeds and like the painting much more.
