second one from the parking deck. loved the reflections in the water and the color harmonies. i'm striving to keep a chunky look to my shapes without a bunch of "wispy" strokes. the water really looks watery dont you think? wow, i need to remember how i did that :D
i was asked how i did my reflections in the painting i did a few posts ago
so here are the bullet points-
put a slightly lighter shape all over the shape of the reflection
make it warmer and lighter than the water, and keep it grayed down
as you get closer and closer to the source of the light thats making the reflection, add lighter and lighter zones
add yellow, pink, or orange paint "spots" that are almost 90% white, right at the end
be sure the reflection is the lightest shape in the whole painting or it wont read as sparkly
Mike- Nice sparkles! (And thanks for the tips.) -Christine
