Autumn Reflections, Acrylic on Crescent Board, 10"x10", NFS
Day 25 of the 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge - #22
In this painting, I continued my exploration of trees and reflections. As I experiment with using the squeegee to create the trees and reflections, I'm trying to get a handle on what works and why. In this painting, I like the amount of looseness, but wanted a little more color in the reflections. Since the reflections are the result of picking up paint from the trees with the squeegee and blending it in the still wet gray-blue paint in the water area, it will be difficult to change later. Definitely something to pay attention to in future paintings.
I am a painter living in Vermont. I've been painting for about 20 years learning as I go along. In the last couple of years I've been learning a bunch of new painting techniques and experimenting with new subject matter.
