Acrylic on hardboard
This started out to be a landscape with very little water. I was using only the secondary colors (a triad color scheme) to begin with. But as I got farther away from the original idea I turned the painting up-side-down; the loose brush work just looked more like water than trees! So I began to play around with more intense contrast and more detail above the water and added water lines to break up the reflections further. I also added extra colors and let the painting take its course. I love the abstract look of the reflections against the realistic foliage.
