River Towy

I finished the above painting of the River Towy today. The photo doesn't really do it justice.
As an aside they say the camera never lies, well it does it flattens things out and takes colours/ tones to a common denominator. When a person does a painting copying directly from a photograph it is usually obvious.
If the photograph is used only for reference purposes to capture details and proportions then the artist is on a winner.
