365, Day 67: Reflections

365, Day 67I don’t really know what to make of today’s painting. It’s so unlike all the others in many ways. For the longest time it seemed to actively resist the addition of any reflections of the trees in the water. I ended up painting way too much water trying to put in reflections and had to walk away from it for a while. I came back later, I managed to put these reflections in and add some birds and have reached what I would describe as an uneasy truce with it all.

There is something about the reflections that I find uncomfortable. There is something about reflecting on them that I find uncomfortable. Somehow, the birds make me feel better.
