View Full Version : 7th painting in my Water Reflections Series

03-25-2013, 04:58 PM
I am really having fun with this new group of large pastel paintings. I was looking for a subject that was a little more "abstract" yet still somewhat realistic. This one is 36 x 24 inches. You can see some of the other paintings in this series here. (http://www.jillwagnerart.com/pastels/water-reflections-p/)

Beautiful! This is something I've been interested in for a while now, just haven't gotten to it. You are inspiring me to make the time. My husband would be thrilled, he loves to sail (we have a sailboat) and be on the water. I love the entire series, each and every painting is beautiful!

A glassy morning around the docks....before the wind comes up and you can't see the down to the bottom. You nailed it!

Outstanding. Looked at the series. Such talent. I have used the reference library because my own pictures are ocean, sand, waves, sand, ocean, wave, seagull, beach, wave, boat, ocean...well I think you get the picture. I will have to look at my pictures again having been inspired by your paintings. Pam

Beautiful! I can feel the movement and adore the reflections and sheen you've created here.

Love this one! Water and reflections are so fascinating and you have done such wonderful work with your representations...

Sigh.... I love it. It is absolute perfection. Of course I had to go look at the other ones as well, and they are all stunning. This is a subject I also love to paint, although not nearly so well!! :clap: :clap: :clap:

Wow! What a series! They're all beautiful Jill, I especially love the water reflections on the hull of the boat in one of them. Thanks for sharing!

Thank you all. And I really appreciate your checking out the whole series! And Derek...Love the idea of a diptych or triptych! My mind is really consumed with water scenes right now and I will continue to post the finished pieces...

glad to see this painting , and the series as well . :)

interesting to me is how the variation of/in the ripples connects to the pilings
but is not a hard mirror image . !
