Surface (Art Board)

Paint Acrylic
Size (16" by 20")
Inspiration (a snapshot taken at Burke's Garden, West VA)

Most Challenging Aspect (getting my lake to look real)

Most Pleased with (landscape area)

Would I do anything differently if I painted this picture again...
(yes, I can't paint two pictures the same, it would look like something totally different)

The reason I painted this picture is because I love lake areas and I love fishing and just being around the water.

Hi Lorette,

I like the beautiful colours in this painting, the trees, the water.
I also like the details, the swan and the little houses.

The only that strikes me is, that the reflections aren't correct.
The water surface is a kind of mirror, and I don't see the trees reflected in it, only a small strip. Try to make the reflections according to the subjects, that's my advise to you.

I hope we can see more of your work in the future. Thank you for sharing.
