Rest From Row


8"x 16"
acrylic on canvas
I am continually surprised by the Different Strokes From Different Folks challenges. A subject that seems simple can be hard and one that seems hard is often easy and enjoyable! I thought this would be a bit boring and was concerned about painting all the water and making it interesting, but I actually really enjoyed this painting and had fun with the water! That is the value of having someone else give you an "assignment". I am painting things that I may not chose and learning every time!

Love your brushwork in the water, especially near the horizon line. Big and bold strokes look great! Love the reflections as well.

I agree completely with you. This challenge does challenge beyond your normal areas of creating.

I concur with Sheila, love the impressionistic style to your submission.
