Lakeside Ablutions

At Wardown park lake there is a large water fountain that shoots up a single column of water, and that reflection is what I tried to capture in this painting.It was early morning and the geese were  peacefully preening their feathers.The roots in the foreground are of the willow  and are said to be three times the height of these trees.
I'm finding standing to paint so much easier and even quicker.Also the larger paintbrushes allow for a more freestyle of painting.
I'm keeping up with the Charles Sovek lessons,about one a day,only I won't be posting them as it is a bit time consuming.

  5. Isn't Solvek wonderful? I love his art and his books are so helpful in learning to simplify and see the light.
