Here’s the painting I completed Friday afternoon at Yaddo during my private workshop.
Some pointers on painting reflections.
- Careful observation is always key to improving your paintings. Take your time to view how the water interacts with light, and surrounding objects.
- Reflected sky light will always appear darker in the water.
- Reflected dark objects, like trees, figures, etc. will appear lighter/duller in appearance.
- Your reflected edges will appear fuzzier and lighter than the reflected shadows directly by the shoreline.
Until next time…
