Sundown @ Five Bends

Today’s project is a commission for a friend; the S. Saskatchewan River as it winds southeast towards Medicine Hat.  From the top of this hill, you can see 5 bends on the river, and the Cypress Hills, blue on the horizon.  As always, first I had to have a really good drawing.  The river breaks are complicated and if I try and paint them without knowing where the paint should go, I always wind up in a real mess. 
This is one of my favourite places to paint, and at sunset it is truly magic.
