Beautiful colors, especially the background of the trees -- so subtle, but varied.

Really nice, Jill! That intense green is a welcome sight and I like the faint appearance of green in the trees too. Before long we'll all be complaining about too much green. :)

Absolutely beautiful. The reflections are wonderful, and the composition, color choices, and diminishing detail give the painting a realistic depth. Very nice!

Thank you so much pastel buddies. I feel really good about this one. Trying to keep a bit of the plein air feel to my studio work. Soon I will actually be able to paint outside!

I was hoping the color scheme would lead you thru the painting. Thanks for reaffirming it for me!
