Reflections I

Reflections I in watercolour, gouache & gold leaf

New painting – 9 x 13 inches, in gouache / watercolour and gold leaf.

I’ve been largely avoiding the issue of reflections on the underside of the water surface for long enough, because they are so complex. This is the first of several where I’ve actually tackled them properly. I’m not trying to get a photographic likeness but aiming for something between that and just a few suggestive splodges of colour.

Close-up by camera (not scanner). The scanner shows up the detail of the paint very well, but not the gold leaf
