the pond



A lake! a lake? no! just a pond - oil on board 11x7"

From paint and draw challenge
We worked on the reflections this month. I disliked the buildings in the reference picture and followed the advice of our host. A little cottage is my choice. If you want to understand go to my site and have a look at my Provence paintings ;)))))
