Lake Warner Shadow

I was struck by the bright light on the yellow tree and the cast shadow with hot colors glowing out of it.

I worked on it over two visits to the site in my kayak, Sketchpad*L, with additional touching up at home. I'm calling it done for now - it's at that dangerous stage where I'm tempted to do little tweaks and details that could lead to killing the original feeling. I'll let it marinate for a while and see if there is really anything that needs to be added or subtracted.

Oil painting of trees in fall colors reflected in calm lake water under an overcast sky. A bright yellow tree on the left catches the sunlight and casts a dark shadow to the right.

Pochade box mounted on kayak with brushes, knives, palette etc and early stage of painting of trees and water.
