North Carolina Mountain Lake

I worked on this painting today to use as a class project for the class I am teaching at Riverside Art Center.  I made the mistake of doing it on hot-pressed 140 lb. watercolor paper and the reflections were difficult for me.  I am hoping it will be easier for my students on cold-pressed paper.  The painting is 9" x 12" and is from a source photograph from the Wet Canvas reference library:  " North Carolina Mountain Lake"  by JAB.

Oh how beautiful, Barb! You may have struggled with the reflections but they came out beautifully. I find myself wishing I could get into one of those canoes and float lazily about on the water.
