Autumn Reflections - A Work in Progress

Today I worked with a limited palette of French ultramarine blue and burnt sienna.

I washed in the sky and water with varying shades of pure burnt sienna.

Using both colours I painted in the distant shore line first, then the closer shore and reflections into the water.

When the paint had dried slightly I scraped out the rocks with a palette knife.

I will post this painting at a later date once I have added some darker more detailed trees.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog and enjoy the artwork.
