The last three paintings have been my most difficult yet. There's a lot more information in them than just a single jar of flowers. I've been using very small brushes which is new for me. I thought in the past that no.6 or 8 brushes were my small brushes. I have things to learn.
I like this painting. It's from photos I took on the camping trip a week ago .I like the foreground a lot. The reeds have a lot to be desired. I needed an even smaller brush, maybe a striper, and more deliberate strokes. The on line picture has more light than the painting which is closer to nightfall.
