Reflection


I have painted a lot of pictures with water and reflections. For me they are always challenging but include a natural balance a symmetry of composition.

What colour is water? Well obviously itself water is colourless but it may appear as any hue (colour or combination of colours). This will be dependent upon particles in the water, what is beneath it (sea or river bed or sand if on a beach) the light at the time and the sky along with factors such as dark and shade etc...

So observation is key to all this and will generally reward you with a balanced painting full of atmosphere. The painting above is of children on Broadhaven Beach.
