Magnetawan Reflections - A Work in Progress

I didn't have a lot of time to paint today but I wanted to get a little more work done on this painting today that I had started last month in the Lucy Manley class (see posts on 10 and 15 December 2014) at KAGS.

I added blue into the sky and gave more definition to the clouds. I also touched up some of the sky holes in the trees on both sides of the painting.

With the cloud colour I straightened the distant shoreline added a little more cerulean blue into both sides of the shore and into the reflection.

The one dark tree on the edge of the closer shore on the right side needed to be placed on that shore instead of hovering between it and the background and I lengthened the reflection in the water as well.

Using mixtures of cerulean blue and white I indicated a few birch trees into the shadows on the shore.

I will post this painting at a later date as more work on this painting is completed.
