Flag Reflections

Flag Reflections
6x6 oil on panel

The most important consideration when you begin a painting is composition or design. 
I was most interested in the shapes of the piers and the shapes of the reflections in the water. There was another boat docked across from this one and after struggling with it, I just eliminated it. Problem solved, and the composition is stronger without it anyway. Think about things like that when you are composing your picture.

What a beautiful summer it has been! Hopefully, it will continue for quite some time. We aren't ready to make the transition.
Also, stay tuned for information about my color mixing workshop!

Mary, fantastic! Great arrangement of shapes. To quote an artist I admire, "Slammin'!"
