Autumn Reflections

Today I have to go and help set up the Peterborough Garden Show at the Evinrude Centre, 911 Monaghan Road, Peterborough Ontario.

The show will run from this evening through to Saturday at 4pm.

I had started this one late last year (see post on 08 December 11). I thought it a little bland with no strong contrasts to create interest.

I added the darker tress and placed some of the stronger colour behind a few of the birch trees to make them stand out a little more.

I then added the darker colour into the reflections in the water and added a wash of burnt sienna over some areas of the water for a little more interest.

When framed, this original watercolour painting will be available for $130.00.
