Reflection

Reflection: Landscape Series. This 24 X 24 raw edge landscape had two main challenges for me. How to make so many shades of green and blue work together. I had to, not only create a composition that would show depth of field, but would have good contrast. The second challenge was to accomplish a believable mirror image in the water. This is hard, even as a painter. But it was much more difficult with fabric. I feel like I accomplished these, in a general sense. It is recognizable as a representation of my vision. However, I feel like I need more practice in this particular technique, which adds so much texture to my elements. I will continue in landscape until I feel comfortable with these challenges.
