Refelection Study

Click Image to see larger version in my gallery

7 x 8 in  -  18 x 20 cm     Acrylic     The purpose of this self invented exercise is to first of all paint the tones of the ripples in a reasonable manner. After that it was an attempt to sketchily copy the reflection shapes of the reference image.

Looking at the finished item one can see that the water should have been darker and that my attempt to glaze a darker zone on the body has resulted in a mess. Next time such over glazes will have to wait until the lower paint is dry/hard but that is normally only a few minutes so it should not be a problem.

This is a fragment from a photo I took in New York in late October. You can get to the photo gallery from the link in side bar on the right.
