This is too gorgeous!!!
I've just started experimenting with watercolor - so far I'd say it's the most difficult medium to master - oils and acrylics,certainly pencils, seem like instant gratification now when I compare them to watercolors. Thank you for such inspiration. I love landscapes; and the water you've done is perfect.
I love it as it appears here - dark - I'd be interested to see the differences as it is in reality. (Hope I haven't gushed too much - :cat: )

Very nice work. The image seems to be sooooo calming, soothing...lovely colors, reflections and the touch with the distant birds is great.

Just got back from spending the night with daughter and family (4 grandchildren & husband), so didn't know I had received so many nice comments on my little painting. Thank you so much. :D
It really was a very calm meditative setting at the time I took the ref. photo. .... that isn't always the case as this is a great destination for a lot of boaters, and can really get busy on holiday's and week-ends.
Thanks again......... Nancy

Beatutiful painting. I like the composition a lot- Simple, clean, very strong. Lovely sense of depth and distance, and I agree with paintsplatter- The birds are a crowning touch. And the way you've handled the surface, the reflections and colors in the water- Gorgeous. You've made it all look easy :D Great work!

Very nice - lovely strong colours too - nice water :D

Wow! Great painting...reminds me of where I used to go swimming as a boy in West Virginia! Nice work.

This is great Nancy!!! I love those reflections. The trees are fantastic!! :) :clap: :clap:

Thank you all for the nice compliments. :wave:
I really enjoy the smaller format, and the challenge of trying to capture the moment on paper as I remembered it. Of coarse I took reference photo's, but the feeling was of calm tranquility with just an occasional bird chirping in the back ground. Hopefully that's what you see. ;)
Again, thank you guys... Jody, Jeri, Mark, Charlies Mum, Cloud Drifter and Starsprite, for taking the time to comment on this little painting. I really appreciate the kind words.
