Reflection On The River

Reflection On The River     oil           9" x 9"
 The gravel bar in the river in this picture was a challenge, because I didn't want it to split the composition in two. My solution was to use an angle leading to the fisherman and I varied the edge of it for interest. The figure and his reflection cut through the line, so it stopped the eye and hopefully brings the viewer back in.

Pin It

Well done too, I like the handling of brushwork separating water from land, great reflection.

Wonderful artworks! Nice to read your thoughts about the painting, as well. I will keep 'an eye' on your artwork (just added your blog to my watchlist)! Saludos from Gran Canaria, Nelly
