I painted a smaller version of this setting in the spring of 2008. A slightly larger canvas allowed me more detail and color. The black outline around the trees is something that I have moved away from, however using the earlier painting as a reference I found this to be a good effect that I will use on future paintings. Both the sky and the water use varying transparent glazes in conjunction with opaque acryl gouache.
