I did it again the horizon is just in the middle of the painting, but after all why not, If you want to get trees and a bit of sky and the reflections you have to make a choice - and in fact this line between air and water i giving a stability a serenity to this piece.
I try to give a story with this one- some blod on the hand but my wife told me not to! so I thought about a toilets sign up the stairs ;)) - But no thanks - Just a hot day and a refreshing sound of falling water.
I had other lemons but I try a crop of Vincent's painting. I like to see that even a master can miss the perspective, the symetry of objects. ;) - Even if it is a deliberate choice (who knows?)
If you make a drawing copy of this painting and showing it in a community forum of artist, without saying that this is a copy, you will get a lot of comments about the perspective, the tilts, the ellipse and so on ... ;))
And you know what , I like Van Gogh as a painter - His nervous brush strokes and the Provence colours he filled his paintings.
