This water scene painted during intermittent rain is perhaps as close to perfect that conditions for impressionism ever get. Created during the following day as the previous canvas, this scene follows the water's edge where the previous canvas ends and forms a perfect diptych. Water in the atmosphere causes refraction of light, exploding bright color in all directions and also allows for air borne particle to settle to the ground allowing for light to travel freely.
The feel of this canvas is pure Africa.One cannot explain why an African scene commands such power but it is a raw vitality found in very few places on earth. The greatness of horizon and distinctive qualities of her clouds, make African skies what they are. The universality of water, air and fire speaks very loud on this magical continent where humans and animals constantly fight for living space. Yet there is nothing more attractive than an African river bank. Perhaps because of one's delicate position in the food chain along waterways such as these. Painting along these rivers had me break all the rules in the survival kit for Africa, but painters are generally reckless and in hindsight I would probably not take these risks again. All for the sake of art.
