"Pond Pine Reflection"

"Pond Pine Reflection"
6"x6" oil on gessobord

This pine is on the same pond with the wonderful houses I painted earlier in the week. I actually started this one last week, and came back to it after the previous few paintings. I learned some lessons here - about reflections and about getting that glow from the sunshine on the trees behind the pine. Reflections: show which is the reflection with a bit of water reflecting the sky. To make the glow read as being behind the tree: extend the foliage that is shining in the sunshine beyond the sides of the tree. I think it all works!
