Pond Reflections


This was one of those paintings where everything went right. I think I completed it within a couple of hours in one session of painting. I had a few colours in mind and then just let the blending and mark-making take over. I knew I wanted a strong sense of light and shadow, and the idea that it could be nightime or early morning/dusk. The small bits of pink were key and I felt added a little bit of magic.

I tried to replicate this painting using another colour palette and failed miserably. Interesting how the right combination of feeling and magic seems to happen very very rarely. At least for me it does.
