River Reflections; Oil on Canvas 40″ x 30″

I utilized a plein air painting created earlier this summer to work this painting. I started by toning the canvas with a mottled wash of Alizaron Crimson. When applying the body color, I aimed to work with a soft touch to allow areas where the essence of the Alizaron Crimson is able to show through. Subtle, but it works. Adds warmth as well as depth to the blue of the sky and water and a nice complement to the green of the tree foliage.
