Now you can see the surprise hidden in Lacy‘s reflection!
Betty requested that a dragonfly be included somewhere in the artwork. (see second pic for a close-up )
I'm continuing to add colored pencil strokes to make ripples, over the watercolor underpainting you saw in previous posts. I love the way ripples break up the reflections of the golden sunset clouds and the blue evening sky above them into these beautiful colors — golds/peaches/pinks…and aqua blues/purple-blues — that interweave with eachother because of the movement of the water. Throughout my whole career I’ve loved capturing reflections in water, and have specialized in that. I love the way the water movement breaks up everything it’s reflecting into graceful abstract shapes.
