"By The Lake"

"By The Lake"
6"x8" oil on canvas panel

I was back by the lake this week, working on this different approach to the reflection. Instead of using the device of a swath of water reflecting the sky, I worked hard to make the reflection darker and more blurry than the actual scene. Compare the above to these previous views of this scene, Houses by the Lake and Lake House Reflections. Which do you think works best?


  1. I love this! The colors are so inviting and the scale seems perfect to me. I really like the reflection Bobbi. I can "feel" the water. Great job.
