Autumn Reflections

This painting combines so many wonderful elements of being outside during the autumn season. The weather is cool and you know by the fall leaves and the mature grass and weeds that the growing season is closing, now is the time to enjoy glorious October.

I enjoyed this painting for the extensive water and reflection opportunities. It is full of 'little' elements that hopefully add toward the strong central focus.

Good landscape paintings always have multiple secondary interest centers.

If you are getting tired of seeing water paintings, then you will be pleased to know that the current work on my easel has none. [Don't get too complacent though because I do have another one in the planning stage]

  1. I love the colors in this one. Your reflection paintings are amazing!

  2. Thank you
    Water reflections are interesting because although they are in a mirror fashion, it is an imperfect mirror. It is also a reflection from beneath the scene so the viewing angle is changed from the direct vision. We see the underside of some elements. And then the water mutes the color or pushes it a bit toward neutral or sky values.

  3. Thanks for sharing your new passion!
