Painting #10 - Days Between

Last summer and into autumn we took several drives out on the Blue Ridge Parkway and often stopped at Simms Pond. Compared to many of the glorious vistas seen from the Parkway, Simms Pond seems a rather unassuming place. And that's what I like about it. Small and quiet, it softly reflects the passing seasons. This view was painted from a reference I took on one of those days that is no longer summer yet not quite fall.

Water reflection well done has such soothing affect. ::sigh::

Just beautiful, the reflection is more beautiful in the painting as in real life.

This is simply beautiful. I love the loose, painterlyness of it. The reflection of the tress in the water is stunning.

Your thoughts on Simms Pond are magical. My kind of place! You've painted this most serene spot so beautifully, Ann. I love how you've handled the reflections of the trees in the water.

This is beautiful Ann!

It looks like you and oil paints get along quite nicely. :)

This is beautiful, Ann. Are you working wet into wet? Using traditional oils or the water miscible? Using any mediums to speed the drying process?

Lynn said...

Ann, that's simply exquisite. The colors are wonderful and those reflections...breathtaking.
