From Under

Hi, I am pretty new here. This is a WIP. 22x22 oil on linen. C&C welcomed. I have about six hours in this and I figure I am half way done. Does it work?

I think it is working so far. Composition is nice. Bits of blue and orange reflections in the water provide a nice variety for the eye, while all the greens and browns in the rest of the areas provide color harmony.

Re: From Under

It is working, I like the painterly quality too. Are you going to refine it? Or leave it as is?

Re: From Under

Ptrkgmc, I am going to refine it, somewhat. Color and value on the water needs to be unified, so I can capture the movement through the painting and out into the bright sunlight. The background will get a touch more work to emphasize the depth of the composition. If I don’t over work it, I hope the vibrancy will survive. Thanks for looking.

It's very nice as is. The expressive brushwork is especially pleasing to the eye. And the color is beautiful. It certainly is working!

Re: From Under

Colors and values are working very well! Great brushwork. Is this painted from life or from photo reference?

It is from my photo composition of a scene near my home.

Calling it done. I may glaze the water when it dries.

Beautiful work! It feels very effortless to look at, and does a wonderful job of putting us inside the scene
