Paint Out Loud...the story behind the art
I never worry about capturing the reflection perfectly, just the essence. I am not a mathematician for sure. I want you to feel the shimmer of the water reflection, to enjoy the colors from the trees and light and darks reflected.
This is a large canvas which makes it even more fun for me. There was plenty of room on the canvas for me to smear and brush and scrape. And the paint and marks and scrapes began to take on a life. I love the light peaking through the trees, and where the reflection in the water has such wonderful changes. I really enjoyed painting this.
Light and Dark - that is what it is all about.
